A little bump and a new price...$175 plus the ride
I have a bead blasted, reversed Corvair steering box with the pitman arm. $200 plus the ride
Purple power or another citrus based cleaner
I see guys use chip board (upholstery cardboard)
Better yet, cut the shaft to length and re-spline it. Safer, much more sanitary.
oh yeah. I cut splines. See my ad in the HAMB O DEX
For just light dirt and grease, Eagle 1 has a good product
3X on the slower cooling, slow warm up, weld, blanket wrap, slow cool
I'd go with the AOD. Setting the TV pressure is really pretty simple
Hooked me up again....Thanks Todd
Mine was bare steel with Grundy.......Cheap and easy folks to deal with
I had one in my coupester...It was surely an "armstrong" effort. Doable, but work at low speed. I ended up using a quickner reversed to reduce...
Torque. I would suggest new bolts......Buy there is probably going to be varying opinions...

If it's a oil-less pump like my old, 60 gallon Craftsman, take a look at the piston and ring assembly
if I open the garage door and it's raining, probably not. If it starts raining while I'm in the drive way.....Keep going
I agree about the entry level Hobart, Miller or Lincoln.....Just stumbled across the Everlast ad on Craigslist. I agree with the statement of "buy...
Has anybody tried Everlast TIG welders? 180 amp, 35% duty cycle for $950 seems like a bargain....Thoughts?

That's pretty cool. Mine is my best best friend and a hot rodder to boot. Look out for your Dad. You only get one.
One of the local clubs here has Friday night cruise in. It's a freebie, but there is a raffle and a donation bucket too. Keeps life simple.
