Just ordered my exhaust gaskets and JNM noise dampening kit. Sometimes if you take enough baby steps, you can get to your destination.

Got a new welder and it welds so much better than my other welder.





Still not a MIG quality looking weld, but is 150% better.

Rode all around town twice today, maybe 20-25miles. Didn't think to look at the trip on the speedometer. It was 78 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Then my engine didn't want 2 idol down . I discovered that my throttle assembly was failing time to order a new one from boy go fast and so I did . its parts like these piston rings and cylinders but I'll buy from him but never ever a complete motor I didn't once and never again . "Once you go DAX you won't go BAX". Gona buy another when they come back in stock. To anyone that wants one ,(and I'm not kidding when I say this) when our ship comes in literally .

Yep that is flux core wire weld... I tell you what the difference between an AC version and the new DC version of a welder is amazing.

Dracothered, You have got me thinking I am going to at least try the flux core on that same welder I have. Never did any flux core, always AR/75 CO2/25. Those pics are they after just using a wire wheel as you got the nice weld puddle ridges showing that welds ought to have!

What size was the flux core and did you go exact by the chart on the inside cover for settings?

MT

PS A flap disk can get rid of the weld spatter and still leave most of the nice weld flow shape intact, so no biggie there.

Went .030 and yes I used the setting they listed. Just wire brushed it off for that picture.

I just need to know if the nuts are fine thread or coarse thread. Because I bought fine thread thinking that's what it was and they didn't work. And they matched up to the nut chart that the store has where you screw your hardware in and match it to the one that it...well..matches. lol




Had an oh sh1t moment just now.

Went to pull the clutch and there was no clutch. lol
Screws vibrated out of the clutch cover. Only had one screw in. So I had to ride like a madman to get home as I couldn't stop. lol

your best bet is to take one of the studs to the store with you so you can see what fits
