A lot of crazy stuff going on in these pictures.

I can't tell what #1 is

Is #1 melted disk material on the pads? I didn't expect that to be possible or look like that.

Edit: Wait. there is no pad. Is all that goo what is left of the pad?.

It's the melted metal backing plate for the long gone pad.
I got a kick out of the secret tools. On the left is a large socket on a right-angle die grinder which spins at a minimum 12,000 rpm and could be 20,000 rpm.

That IS a die grinder, isn't it? I was thinking the joke was how he used a combination of sockets to make the large one fit, but that was just one part of it.

That is a 1/4" drive air rachet. With 3 drive adapters and a socket that is way to big for it.

Looks exactly like one of my die grinders to me.

How would you attach a socket adapter to a die grinder?

Everything that goes wrong with my buddy's truck is because the Throckmorton seized up.

Must be an old truck. He could swap it out for a fitzer valve, a 220, a 221. It's all ball bearings these days.
