Just a matter of time. Judgment made lawsuits pending. YouTube might go down for good if they don't reverse course. I hope they do. 
Meanwhile I'm using a fair platform that doesn't discriminate.

There's a fair use law that allows background music. They are banning anyone that tells the truth and not a Lib. Court ordered them to reinstate them in Texas but it has to go to the SC to be nation wide. Lots of lawsuits as we speak.

Shame because it looks like you lost a fair bit of effort. The topic was almost timely but I didn't see it until after I did valve shims on my 1980 LTD that I'm readying for sale and after they pulled the video. Did you use the factory tool? If so, how do you like it? At the time they were out of stock so I just made one that worked pretty well and thankfully the process restored the 175 lbs compression back to cylinder numero uno. That's Spanish for #1. Thought that little puff out of the carb was a symptom. I guess so was that little silvery smiley on top of the otherwise carbon color piston (borescopes are fun).  

And coincidentally, more and more I'm gravitating towards articles rather than videos for how-to learning. Often Articles with pics are less a waste of bandwidth and time. Easier to search as well. Some videos I've seen even included misinformation that also "collided" with the truth and could result in damage or worse. It's nice to give back to the sharing economy and big tech unfortunately inserts itself edgewise into the process and mucks it up. I'd best read their "Terms and Conditions"if I'm contemplating utilizing YT as a vehicle but I'm less and less inclined. 

Anyways, as usual, I  digress.

Keep up the good fight, Steve!

They're reinstating accounts and I hope to have mine back soon. May not matter as they all may be taken down anyway. Rumble and others are taking their market share. Zuck has lost his place as the top 10 richest men and going down fast. Twitter is being exposed as full of bots and I suspect FB as well. Bill had to fight them and it looks like he's succeeded.   The world is changing and "It's the end of the world as we know it."

It's always the end of the world as some know it. It's just evolution. I suppose the fact we like our old bikes, prefer them in fact, is telling of something. Now, before I digress, again and in perpetuity,  (sorry, my inner Don Quixote) did you use the factory tool?

I use that POS $10 tool. I HATE IT.  If there are no ads I don't think they get anything. When I started I didn't want to be monetized so ads would be first. I HATE ADS TOO.   Not long after they raised the bar to over 1000 subscribers or something like that. I would have lost it anyway and I don't give a SHT. 
When I need a new rear tire I'll adjust the valves and put the video on Rumble.
