toyota tundra rear differential repair

and getting the frame ready for welding




  1. Could I please ask you to use the stand for the camera a bit more ….It just moves to much for me …and I really like looking at your videos…please….

  2. Hey Mustie… In NY… I use a coat of JB Weld to fix oil pans and cracked blocks…. The grey 48 hour stuff…. The trick is surface prep.. To bridge large holes use a small piece of aluminum tape. ATF is the best undercoat.. Chevy's rot just as bad…

  3. Totally agree with you on the undercoating removal but think you should spray on a rust converter like Ospho (sprays on and covers just like water), that drys overnight and then coat with your heavy oil. Double protection with nothing to trap saltwater.

  4. Absolutely love your videos mustie1! Many of them like this one serve as reminders for me to never move north. Rust and snow blowers sounds like hell.!! Thank you for your good work!

  5. Enjoyed the video and the comments, all very helpful! A relative in the salty Midwest just gave me a Tundra with MAJOR rust problems. The frame had already been replaced by Toyota but the dealer bolted many severely rusted pieces right back onto that new chassis. I'm doing triage on it right now, trying to decide what can be scraped and painted and what has to be replaced. I think the frame will make it but various connectors, bearings, bolts, cables, springs etc. are in really bad shape. Have already removed the corroded rear bumper and support/hitch. I think a needle scaler is in my future, and some metal prep, rust reformer and paint. Should be quite a project.

  6. It not Japanese Steel! that's the problem 😂 Toyota contracted the rear ends to a company in Mexico and the frames as well they did not follow TOYOTA's strict quality standards. If it's not TOYOTA from Japan it's JUNK.

  7. After watching your channel, I have decided, I will never live in a state that uses salt on the roads. Living in the northwest we have tons of snow and ice in the winter, but we don't use salt. We use a sand product instead.

  8. Corrosion Protection does exactly what the name implies. It protects your corrosion. Had this been a British car, it would have leaked enough oil to protect the metal – at least slightly better than undercoating.
    Check out Applied Science youtube channel for a recent explanation and test of anti corrosion additives for oil.
    Yes. Deoxit from Caig does what it claims.

  9. Frame needs to be factory hot dip gal n’est ce pas? Regrets mustie1, as I said previously we don’t get the rusty car situation from salt in Melbourne. Never heard of diff punkins rusting through here either.

  10. Okay a limited slip means when you're turning curves it will slip to wear your tires do not bark and let's one will lose to turn on the other hand a full locker well lock both tires in the wheel and makes turning extremely hard because of outer wheel and inner wheel or trying to turn at the same time limited slip does not mean it will slip and then let go limited slip it allows your tire to free will around turns high RPM

  11. hey mustie. im a plumber i have several pipe threading oilers. after years of use rain etc the rust pinholes in the pot. i clean them and i spray truck bed liner all in the pot after i epoxy them. now 6 years later there still in use. you should spray your tundra differential cover with that it will never leak or rust again

  12. That frame would buckle and break in even a minor accident. Toyota trucks command a lot because of the perceived quality. I think Ill pass on them after seeing this…

  13. I can recommend a product like Tectyl ML, is is very thin and penetrating when sprayed on, and forms a rust inhibiting, slightly elastic amber coloured layer. Also very suitable to spray into hollow forms such as suspension bars under the doors (using the tube provided on some products). There is also a compound with the same stuff protecting against rust, but in a black rubber/tar like form, where the surface is exposed to impacting gravel and rocks. Some car brands used it on every new car in the nineties and early 21st century, before aluminium car parts and fully electrolysed bodies. Toyota apparently did not on your Tundra 😉
