no, but TA Performance has a 3 carb, and it's cheaper.
there was no 364 in 1953-56.
Man, readin this stuff makes me wanna build a lakester so bad. An inspiration at the least.
I weld aluminum all day, but i thankfully have one those fancy pants forced air helmets. full sealed from the outside, blows a nice cool breeze on...
That made my day.
Nope, that's bad. if it's fusing back together, either you are going to slow, or you're to hot.
the best cuts are with just enough heat to melt...
i'm lookin more for 50's Kustoms than hotrods, but thanks for the tip.
anyone have any picture of kustoms using wood as an interior? (Dash, rear deck, door panels) that aren't woodies?
E**y usually has a ton of 'em.
if your max torque is between 1800 would be perfect. i'd try and shoot for 1900 so you can still cruise at 60 comfortably.
keep in mind those tanks can be filled up to 3000psi. do you REALLY wanna play with it?
I think i just proved to myself i drink way to much.
Aluminum works better for TIG. with MIG it tends to burn through.
Is that Jameson?
if your a novice, these are a godsend. you won't need to worry about blowing through a joint.
Junkyard 305 is probably your best bet if you don't wanna spend much money. They can be had for 100$ easy.
that blacked out roadster is Sa-Weet!
Who let Shamu out?
those crafty Germans and their diesels.
it won't rust if done properly. we mig weld all of our liquid containers at work and they don't rust. you use a 98% Argon 2% Oxygen mixture....
yes you can, but i'd still TIG it. Better yet, make it out of Aluminum.
It's Squirrel hair.
tacking is easy, you can tack way hotter than you weld because you're only there for a few seconds.
i weld Aluminum all day, usually around 27...
Just keep the wire feeing into the thicker stuff, but make sure you still melt the edge of the thinner wall.
Another technique is to pre heat the...
The Millermatics are great machines. Just set the metal thickness and go.
More, but that is a beautiful piece of work you've got!
The fizzing means you have entered spray transfer as opposed to short circuit or globular, which is high heat and low wire, which would explain...
i've been doing MIG aluminum every day for a while now, and my best advice is do 2 passes. do one quick pass with high wire, just to seal up the...
