What trails are you running this year Patrick?
My trails for WENT 2018 are
Intermediate Expert: 35/26/27
Intermediate Expert: 2/16
Plus the night run
Hopefully I get this SAS worked out and fine tuned so I can make the most of WENT
I know I signed up for the intermediate Expert for all the days I'm there.
Sweet! Hopefully we are on a trail together 1 day.
POR got delivered today. Gonna start tomorrow night or saturday morning on getting the axle coated and letting it cure.
Also, I have a small cheap stick welder on its way so I can work on a few other things
My little welder came in today. Hell for $180 I couldnt pass this up. Has really impressive reviews on amazon and youtube. Gonna be perfect for the garage and to take to events for broken parts.
Runs on both 110v and 220v and has a 60% duty cycle which is really impressive on its own. If it only lasts me a couple years and I run the hell out of it, well worth that $180
Do NOT weld anything over 1/4 inch. This is a short circuit transfer welder. Not a spray or globular welder.
Truth. If I have to run anything thicker I wil have to seriously bevel it out. Bought this mainly for repairs and small projects. I really dont like Smaw process for most things, but the simplicity is nice for repairs in the driveway.
My bad here. I didnt realize this was a SMAW. I thought it was a GMAW.
All good, I want to pick up a Mig/Gmaw unit maybe next year but its kinda out of the question until I can make room
Minor little update. I managed to get ahold of a company that used to sell Delrin Intake Plenum spacers. They had recently gone out of business but their Facebook page was still up and I managed to get one of their last spacers. I will install it when I get to doing the valve covers and such this summer. Evem if it doesn't make a difference at least I tried to make some power.
Ive been pretty flu ridden the last few days but I am tired of sitting in the house. Decided to make a little raised platform on my BluePoint roller for my welder. Im by no means a carpenter but it turned out ok and does what I want.
Well that's cool.
Well spent my birthday on the road to denver... stumbled across a few things while I was there...
Right? I still need to pull them down and scrub them up really good and get them looking like new, but I dont think it will take much.
Everything inside is brand new as well as the bearing on the ends and the hoses
