    Found this old Galion 503 motor grader for sale on Marketplace so me and a buddy went and picked it up. Its a little rough in some spots but I think its going to be an excellent machine for maintaining my super long driveway and maybe worth taking out to do some jobs with!

      it all started with ViceGripGarage then it all went downhill with various other channels of surprisingly skilled backyard engineers I'm not complaining.

      Crazy, ice is on of the most strongest things it seems. Expands when frozen and just sits when it water lol. Nice going man, looks like the weather down there isnt too bad. Up here is western New York is cold snowy and icy lol.

      17:22 this old decrepit grader fires up faster than my brand new car

    13. Smashlol

      it makes me scared watching you attempt operate machinery

    14. aaron71

      YES!!! I've had this weird obsession with graders since I was a kid. This is awesome.

      1. Diesel Creek

        Well then your in the right place! Haha there are 3 videos on this gem now! Check em out!

    15. Tricky Dicky

      Tightens my nuts every time I see someone standing in the cable recoil area, should it break. Have a look at some of the videos where that has happened, you wouldn't do it again.

      1. Diesel Creek

        I’ve seen them. I don’t like doing it either but sometimes there’s no good options, I only did it here to get the cable tensioned so it spooled correctly on the drum

    16. nut master


    17. nick

      i think it has a ghost man be very careful around it.

    18. Jeepin Dave

      You need to watch shake hands with danger because you weren't thinking. You'll end up like 3 finger Joe

      1. Diesel Creek

        I might have to do that!

      2. Jeepin Dave

        Thank you for the reply

      3. Jeepin Dave

        @Diesel Creek lol edit in the guitar rift next time and be my hero

      4. Diesel Creek

    19. Mick Glenn

      Dude Really,,,,,,,,, Go back to bed,, get some better breakfast,,,, something... Your electrical connections NOT firing correctly,, today

    20. Fire Walker

      😂 man, this was not your day. Enjoyed the video though. I’ve been watching another IRvisionr overhaul an old bulldozer with a dump bucket he found in a barn. Then came across this video, got you a new sub dude.

    21. jeff benefield

      it aint gotno aiur init

    22. Mike Walling

      you had me in hysterics when it went off on its own as I knew what was going gto happen ha ha

    23. arton power

      28:35 it was still in gear when you tried to start it. The very reason why it would not start. Battery was good. And when it was pulled still in gear... could have killed you buddy. Be more cautious

    24. Dev’s Vlogs Ń stuff

      Well, at least we know it runs! That’s the important thing!

    25. Quick Decision Automotive

      Should name it Christine 🤣🤣

    26. Николай Ширкин

      Ничего не понятно, но очень интересно))

      That's awesome

    28. trance dj

      @Diesel Creek - you prob got a bunk/counterfeit sd card from amazon or ebay. for those nowdays i buy directly from sandisk. they are the same price as on amazon and you know you're not getting a fake.

      1. Diesel Creek

        I got it through amazon but sandisc was the seller I can usually spot the knock off crap and this one was legit.

      I 800-dial-a- prayer might help. Seriously Mattthings will work out sooner no later yes.

    31. Ethan Jones

      I'm new to channel

    32. Paul Robinson

      Could have also made the gasket out of leather laying around somewhere if there was any around.

    33. William Sanders

      Change all the oils. If there's water in the trans, there's likely water in the tandems as well. And possibly the hydraulic. And 10 years is a bit longer than most oil's shelf life. Also check the front hub bearings and circle drive case. Good engine, and everything (except the electrical) seems to work fine. Just gonna take some money to fix it up.

      1. Diesel Creek

        Working on it!

    34. Neil Murphy

      What is that white cylinder tank below the valve cover for.

      1. Neil Murphy

        @Diesel Creek Thank you.

      2. Diesel Creek

        Oil filter

    35. Larry Iowa/Texas Rooster

      👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🗽🙏🏻 Enjoyed! How did the water get into the gear case?

    36. Terry Wheelock

      It is NEVER the tool, it is the OPERATOR! Hint! 🤣

    37. Terry Wheelock

      This is the "CLASSIC" grader! You gotta restore it! It will last forever! 👍

    38. Jim Shoe

      Might not be possessed, but certainly seems to have a mind of its own 😳 I'm impressed that it started as easy as it did. Just a couple $1,000 more in parts and you will have an almost new old grader. That is the thing that drives me nuts, I have a very old loader and every time I use it, I end up fixing another thing, it's enough to drive you nuts 😵‍💫

    39. TheBestMachines

      Great video friend if they are amazing machines before they made good quality👍

      I hope you didn't waste any money on lotto tickets that day! :-)

    43. Shaldur prime

      this is the weediest road grater I have ever seen, literally and figuratively, this is one of the few vehicles I would describe as anemic

    44. PROVID ™

      spends a galon that quick.. must be why they named it Gallion

    45. Planet Mojo

      A tip on your GoPro. When you have the camera mounted, turn off Hypersmooth. It tries to smooth out movements and you get that rocking motion you can see when you are working at the bench as it tries to smooth your hand movement. To fix, make a preset mode with Hypersmooth tuned off and choose 'Mounted' as a name for it, and make sure to use 'Mounted' any time the camera is not hand-held.

      1. Planet Mojo

        @Diesel Creek Mine keeps crashing. Don't know how to solve that one, other that turn up the beep volume so I can hear it over the tools 😉

      2. Diesel Creek

        Thanks! Yes it was giving me problems today and I was trying to figure that out

    46. Роман Пухляр

      I seen this on Facebook a couple weeks back thought about buying it then seen your video and I guess I could have figured you'd buy it haha

      1. Diesel Creek

        I think it was a decent buy. always looking for a neat project. you dont find them this size too often!

    51. Brian

      10? This thing looks like it has been sitting for decades what did he use it for?

      1. Diesel Creek

        owned a paving company, used it to grade out driveways Im told

    52. Akio

      about the camera issue, i think its the memory cards you use, cause some of them (cheaper ones) dont have enough speed for the camera and just give you problems and it may help to replace the sd-cards if they were used very frequently as they degrade over time

      1. Diesel Creek

        brand new scandisk extreme ultra pro. fastest you can get to my knowledge.

    53. Edward Esty

      After many years of experience with stuff like this before taking the engine out pull the clutch inspection cover . This will give you access to the pressure plate bolts you can then back them off enough to free the plate and disk . If needed you can hook your excavator bucket to the rear and with it in gear rock it back and forth .

      1. Diesel Creek

        you'd better go check out the new video lol

    54. richard truesdell

      Are you going to buy your wife a point file for her fingernails?

      1. Diesel Creek

        hahahah I should...

    55. Elliot Azus

      Hi Matt, I've been watching IRvision videos for about five years and this one has been the most favorite & funny reading the comments on the Galion Grader. Definitely mouses are magic. Again God bless and take care

      1. Elliot Azus

        @Diesel Creek Please don't forget the red lips at the top of blade!!

      2. Diesel Creek

        Glad you enjoyed it! the grader series seems to be a hit!

    56. Oliver Barco

      It wanted to sleep

    57. Bill Weyman

      Hi Matt I just love these videos I love to see old Motors start and get new life out of them by the way what is the name of the music that your playing when your cutting the gasket for the Galion carb LOVE THAT MUSIC....

      1. Diesel Creek

        I can’t go back and listen right now but almost every song I use is available to listen to on my buddies channel (he makes my music) link to his channel in the description!

    58. Briguygotnicethighs

      Film 2 angles. Just in case a camera fails

    59. Sara Barnes

      The brainy rate natively cover because mint conjecturally pick amid a obsequious submarine. strange, skillful nose

    60. Dan P

      Mat, don't worry. It just wasn't your day. Others may never show how they make mistakes. But you let us participate. That's very honest of you. Keep going and stay healthy. Kind regards from Southeast Asia Dan

    61. Pierre Etleloup

      Bravo 👏 dude !

    62. nova

      For yall who want to see what the thumbnail said without watching the whole video 29:00 And here it again but from a different angle 29:17

    63. Psalm

      You should name it Christine.

      1. Diesel Creek

        You should check out part two friend, Christine it is!

    64. Neil Young

      Hey, stuff happens with electronics and videos. Its probably more a memory card issue. Lots of incompatibility with memory cards....and it just happens after you have used them forever. Keep the great videos coming!

      1. Diesel Creek

        It was a brand new card and brand new camera

    65. TroniX FiX

      Sell the gopro and get a used iphone 11 for the same price

    66. Donald Parker

      Ahhh.... So you're a lefty. Southpaws unite😁👍!

    67. adam Carfield

      It's connected to a poltergeist 👻 lmaooooo

    68. Daniel Reid

      I had the same problem with my hero five black gopro and I got a new micro sd card and it worked fine.

      1. Diesel Creek

        I think extreme cold played a part in it. the cameras dont seem to like that.

    69. 7curiogeo

      No more issues for a long, long time. Hahahahaha. Such an optimas.

    70. fred dieckmann

      Let sleeping dogs and road graders lay.

    71. Jacob Rodriguez

      I don't care what you think about the environment or environmentalists, these are the people that are helping reduce carbon emissions. More pollution goes into to making these new efficient vehicles than the actual use of it! If more people would just start saving stuff like this we'd probably be better off, not that I really see eye to eye with most environmentalist anyway.

    72. Robert Geary

      Great video thank's 👍

      1. Diesel Creek

        No problem 👍

    73. TSM_plushyYT

      Sad a rusty peace of iron hurt u

      1. TSM_plushyYT

        Well ur very lucky that u did not get hurt I hope u don’t

      2. Diesel Creek

        It didnt hurt me one bit lol I love her!

      Shades of "Maximum Overdrive".

    75. Mac Gregor

      Why the hell you let it idle for so long without oil in gearbox? It spins even if you aren't in gear. If it was sitting so long full of water, there was no oil film on almost everything. I guess she got some betting just for that.

    76. Memphis Darkside Muzik HD

      your camera sux.go buy another gopro.i still using my gopro hero 4.no issues.i hate the new gopros.

    77. Bill Z

      It is a GREAT video!! It is surely real. Sometimes you see things and think how did things go so smoothly, when you tell yourself it was edited. Yours is real, and what real life is about. Very well done!

      1. Diesel Creek

        Thanks! That’s what I aim for!

    78. Mandy Birkett

      its ok

    79. A B

      Did you change the oil? before running?

      1. Diesel Creek

        No need the oil looked good. Changed it once I got it home and had the engine hot.

    80. BoostAddict

      We've got a 1960 Champion 562C that gets used semi-regularly. There's a 1966 D600 at auction right now we're looking at buying, maybe for parts. Champions are cool, built a few hours away from here. They aren't very big, and they make this thing look tiny lol.

    81. Francis

      wonder how much u pay for this old truck?

    82. Gordon Agent

      Hi Matt, enjoyed this video. My Dad always told me to consider every gun loaded and every machine capable of killing you. I know you are probably getting sick of hearing that but please be careful as I like your content and would like to see alot more of it. All advice is in friendliness with your longevity in mind. Being young means you have the curiosity to jump from one thing to another so dont curb your enthusiasm, life is mean't to be lived

    83. Ortorea Screenname

      Those cheap counterfeit micro sd cards go bad, I had similar problem in my ip-camera stick to big brand names.

      Well, birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it's not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.

    88. ?

      Almost got you... :)

      Like it. i'm 73 i used to see a grader just like that one doing work on the road in the ranch i was born at. I was about 8 years old at the time. 60 years ago. By the way I inherit that same ranch in Texas.

    94. Devin Carson

      Man I would love tind one of these

    95. Michael D. Coulombe

      I, as one, have worked on a lot of different engine-transmissions, right below the clutch should be a cover plate. If you take that off and get at the clutch you can drive shims in between the clutch and pressure plate, I have used real slim screwdrivers all the way around once when my 1943 powerwagon sat for a couple of years one time. It didn't seem to hurt the clutch plate any at all. Michael said that bye for now my friend.
