Haha, not sure thats quite as bright as weldingwhat bout having adjustable tint knob, or will the fixed shade 4-11 be enough to not blind myself. how do ppl test em. pop in front of cars highbeams?
x2Should be fine mate, have you tried a small weld to test it
arc welding in shorts?you wont need fireproof overalls, i've watched my friend weld in shorts and vest top without any problems
and nice work with the new + wiring
Oh yeah thats what i got it off dunno why i thought it was volvo.i have a mechanics overall, they're usually flame retardent aren't they? like from grinder spray etc
noddie: its from a saab 9000
http://www.knfilters.com/search/universal.aspxi'll need a cone filter that'll fit the 60mm pipe, preferably k&n. since filters are listed mostly under what car model they fit, anyone know which model would be 60mm. or do i have to drive to demontweeks and try various ones?
yea the turbo inlets 60mm dia. i used 60mm 90deg elbow to try avoid fouling the rad fan. 60mm pipe goes up, across the manifold and into the 60mm filter near the washer bottle. afm stays near the TBCan i ask why you are looking for it to be 60mm? surely the inlet for your turbo isnt that big? are you going to run the afm between the turbo and filter? Ed(fusion) said that that caused problems when he tried to map a car set up like that and that it is best to have it just before the TB
Thicker rods need more amps to melt them properly, so no good for low amp work.its a start frank but i could prob do better next time. when i lift the stick at the end of the weld i always find the hot tip just keeps burning abit and once its cooled its surrounded by flux so i either have to trim the flux with pliers or just keep banging the tip onto the surface to try chip the flux off till is sparks again, tis annoying.
what happens when i use bigger rods other than not being consumed as quickly? prob burn through sheet metal i feel?
noddie, i'm using 1.6mm mild steel rods.
i think i'll need to put some sorta heat sink behind sheet metal like copper plate so the base metal doesn't burn through as easily.
yea i def ned to track some loca scrappy for spare metal and build a practice frame.
another thing i need to figure is how to weld think plates onto thinner plates (like the wideband bung onto a thinner SS exhaust) cos the thinner plate tended to just melt away.
im going to have to ive got 120miles from a full tank and it a bit under half a tank!15? either ur runnin a v8 or somethings really wrong. even after a trackday i get at least 25mpg.
check ur not leakin fuel, all temp/o2/afm/tps sensors workin in spec, injectors not leakin or sticking, plugs are not fouled
or better yet, plug a consult diagnostic to it to see the data readings
Show offyou,ll soon get the hang of striking up the welding rod paul, just strike it hard for the 1st touch to clear any flux from the tip eh
here,s an edge weld of half a mil thick galvanised steel (bodypanel thickness) and a 2.5mm and a 1/8 rod
