Yes SIR! you are correct and you seem to know my game plan so well.


On a side note, Was looking at the fitment of my engine. Is is ok that my headers touch the fire wall? Just noticed that they are the way I have it mounted. Attempted to adjust it and didnt get to far. Ill try again tomorrow.

From what I gathered you will need to either use truck exhaust manifolds or some from a van you dont want them hitting your firewall. Or you could buy center dump block hugger headers $$$ The 80's 318 stock truck manifolds are center dump so they will work as well you may also find that your durango driver's side will come out right on top of your starter and front driveline unless you use one of the above manifolds I spoke of. Good luck I've got my eye on a set of truck headers at a junk yard. Im here to help you help me. Lol

**edit** here is a pic of a stock truck manifold I heard they will work

Yea something like that should work I've heard mixed reviews some say they fit on the magnum heads others say they are not quite right might have to hold them up and see first.

I found this an intresting read since some things I will be using will apply to using the older LA Block and the newer magnum. I want to find some old school aluminum valve covers and put them in my motor.

I see the AX15, but I don't remember my transfer case being that long.

Found this on CL and thought it was a decent deal. I'd Offer $150 and see where it goes. Any suggestions, Im a rookie when it comes to welding and this will be my first one. Just going to be doing general Jeep things with it.

Man, I hate to break it to you, but this welder is extremely light duty, good for body work and tack welding sheet metal, but to do any structural work such as roll bar fab or frame repairs, it's not going to hold up. You'd need at least 140 amps to weld 3/16 and multiple passes would be required. The best thing to go for the everyday handyman would be a MIG welder, with 180 amps. I have a Lincoln Mig-140 and the power is good for anything i had to weld so far, but for anything above 3/16 I'd take it to a welding shop. Welding with a mig is very easy to learn but if you go with a underpowered machine the welds will appear OK on the surface, but they will be what's called "cold welds", that's when there is no penetration and the metal ain't actually fused together, just held by a small pool of welding wire. Im in no way an expert when it comes to welding, but for 150$ this machine is old and underpowered for most things you'd wanna use it on. A welder is a great versatile tool, saves so much time and effort, instead of thinking "where am i going to put that bolt" or "damn i hate these rivets!", you just go "**** this, I'ma weld it and it ain't gonna move. EVER"


Just my 0.2, Good luck!

I agree with bootlegger, this is a very light welder like he said for mostly body work. ive used this model before (grandpa had 1 for about 6mo before he sold it haha)
I concider myself a darn good welder and can use every kind of welder as far as mig oxy and arc and i simply couldnt get this little welder to burn the weld in hot enough to hold....you would be better off with Lincoln Mig-140 as stated above with the gas retrofit to run argon gas (just my .02)

Shooter, this is just my opinion, but guns are worth too much to be selling them to buy something else. Even a welder.

I love your sig. I wish Canada's gun control wasn't as crazy as it is. Here if you want to get a pistol for target shooting you have to go through a full background check by the RCMP (our own NSA-FBI-CIA) and if they give you the "privilege" to buy guns, that mean they are legally allowed in your life and can drop by your house anytime, or tap your phone, or seize your weapons if they feel like it. Cause you know, every gun owner is going to mass murder people at one point in his life

Not to hijack Shooter's thread, but yeah, I get you. I live in one of the worst states in the US for that kind of stuff.

Ironic though, how Canada got rid of its long-gun registration program because it was costing a ton of money and not doing anything to prevent crime, yet here in the US the gun-grabbers keep trying to get "universal registration" passed and ignore the reasons why Canada got rid of their own registration program.
