As many of you have suggested, I have created a Patreon page where you can support the show directly: www.patreon.com/WorkshopDiaries
Back to a bit of a wrestling with John’s ‘garden-find’ Range Rover; having sprayed fuel all over the workshop floor I now need to work out exactly where it is leaking from and whether the fuel lines can be repaired or if they’ll need to be replaced…
Also, part three of the World’s Fastest Electric Ice Cream Van project; having removed the diesel engine, chosen the electric motor and 3D scanned the mating faces I now need to work out how to connect the gearbox and motor shafts together so in this episode I explore the various components and how they could go together…
Thanks to my production pixies for capturing the magic and stringing it all together in a plausible fashion.
Big thanks to my brand partners who are supporting the channel; to find out more about them, please go to our website: www.workshopdiaries.com

  • one aspect of this work I just don't understand: Why would you not give the entire vehicle a thorough pressure wash top and bottom before starting work on it? Working on a slimy/muddy/grotty vehicle is miserable. The work would be significantly easier if there wasn't a constant battle with mud/grot/dirt everywhere.

  • I didn't quite get the idea on this series. Edd does some work on car but its too little to be interested. Why he doesn't do more work on every episode ? I mean he just removed fuel line.

Been loving these new episodes, great work, and i have to mention the intro of this one, very 'Stompy', love it! Also, gotta appreciate the help on the whole team that is making these possible with the support of all the viewers, brilliant job! Keep it up, and i'll keep educating myself ;) Peace \/

  • Personally I wouldn't have bothered even considering a repair. The lines were so rusted it will inevitably happen again elsewhere. Replace!

  • Edward, I promise it was not me. Will you put the little American flag back on the black Ford again sometime please? I have the other one of the set, you must have found that after I drove away from the ponzi parent's house with my window down. I really like having you for a neighbor, I would like to be friends again. You and Marilyn treated me better than Garth ever did, and I miss your company.

  • Love your work Ed but why would you try to salvage a.) rusty and troublesome fuel pipes and b.) a complete rust bucket of a Range Rover. I know it’s for your channel but surely it can’t be cost effective.

  • Hey Edd, you have no idea how much joy it gives me watching you work on cars again and explaining what you do so crystal clear as you do. Screw WD, your section was the star of the show, for sure! Keep up the good work!

  • Love the content as always Edd - it’s great to have you back. Just one suggestion on Patreon, you may want to make a more obvious difference between the levels, perhaps even stretching out the cost spectrum a bit. For instance, at x level you get sent a sticker, at a higher one after a few months, a t-shirt etc. Just by way of example, one of my favourite couples have their Grizzly ‘n Bear overlanding channel and a Patreon at www.patreon.com/GrizzlyNbear. Their tiers go from $3 to $20, with different things coming at each level. We even got a lovely Christmas car from Taiwan! Anyway, they have plenty of people supporting them at the higher level. Just a thought. All the very best

  • Hello Edd I have a Ford ranger 4x4 C.C. diesel 3.0 Turbo, it has the problem in the front axle. I´ve change the tires in the four wheels, and front axle began to waste more tire from inside than from external rubber, I take it to a person to align by computer, to arrange the proper alignment and camber, time later I realize that the problem persists, and I don´t know how to fix it. I ruin a pair of new tires, need to fix it. An other thing is happening is the directional light doesn´t work or it makes one blink, but the emergency lights blinks normaly. Do you know what can it be? Thank you Hernán Sánchez Buenos Aires ARGENTINA

  • 08:08 Maybe some reengineering of the fuel line routes to avoid tight spots? (Not sure of the budget constraints, but I assume this will be driven.) Maybe a inline filter to have a convenient breakpoint in the fuel lines if Rerouting would be inconvenient and/or unacceptable @ Inspection? Just thinking of next time the Vehicles fuel lines needs to be serviced.

  • I had a 1969 Land Rover years ago. It was, without a doubt, one of the worst designed vehicles I have ever seen. Little things like having to remove the hood, grill and left front fender (Left hand drive for North America) to access the clutch and brake master cylinders. Mine was outfitted with an auxiliary fuel tank which of course leaked. To remove the tank and repair it you had to remove some of the rear suspension to get it out. It used to snap the short axle in the rear differential with alarming regularity and more than once had to head for home with front wheel drive only, and had a heater which would equal a candle with a hamster on a tread mill to power the fan which could barely defrost the windshield let alone actually keep you warm (Totally inadequate for Canadian winters) Flat out would do about 55 MPH with it's anemic four cylinder gas engine and the transmission and transfer case limited any conversation with the volume of it's howls. There was very little thought given to maintenance and the cons handily exceeded the pros. I traded it off after two years.

  • You might save yourself a lot of grief by doing a frame off to run new fuel lines. Run new brake lines while you're at it. Think about oiling under body to, at least, do (something) about the rust.

He recently passed away and watching you brings me so much happiness and makes me feel like we’re together once again while watching. You are our favorite mechanic. Thank you for what you do and how you do it. You mean more to us fans than you realize! Keep up the good work!

  • Great show but I wish you would be a bit more consistent with your content, when and how did you fix or replace the Range Rover fuel pump? You ended one episode leaving us hanging and then skipped the Range Rover and the next thing you are fixing a fuel pipe leak with the pump working?

  • Hi Edd, I am following you for years and I am glad that you're finally sharing the fameous big size gloves that you are using (I just ordered them with a t-shirt) ;-) ... we are probably sharing the same hand size issue as I am a a 6'6' dude (with large wide hands) so my question is in relation with this, how do you manage to work in close space with your big hands size... any tips? or just patience and tools like I do. P.S I subscrubed to your patreon but you must have a £50 subcrition for poeple like me that want to help more. Thanks Edd for Everything and let's keep science and knownledge rule the world cheers and greets from Switzerland Dimitri

  • Thank god I don't work on Landrovers every day like I used to for years! Very dirty work, everything covered in mud, sheep and cow manure, every nut and bolt rusted and everything seized, and paid peanuts as a mechanic also having to buy your own expensive tools which often break, its not worth being a mechanic when you are working for someone else.
