    350hrs, I can pretty much garrentee you that the engine RPM is off. You need a meter that reads frequency. Plug the leads into one of the 120Vac terminals and set the adjusting arm on your engine to read 62.5HZ.

    And dump the suspected dinosaurus oil out in favor of Quaker or Syntec 5-50.

    That'll keep things cool.

    use higher octane gas and check your fuel pump? my tb runs like garbage if its hot and they put 87 octane in tank. runs better with 89 or 92

    Question for Cruizer

    Hey Cruizer, a guy at work has a 305G that he bought new in February. Has 350 hours on it and we burn 3/16 7018 at about 250amps for hours and days on end. Today, his machine appeared to starve for fuel. At the middle or nearing the end of an electrode, the engine would bog down bad and stumble until he would stop welding. It would run fine till the next rod, then same thing about half way thru it. We shut it off, checked the fuel filter which looks fine and after about 15 minutes, started welding again. After half an hour, same problem appeared, rod after rod. It was about 33degrees here today. Is the fuel pump overheating? Should he run it with the side door removed? Is the fuel pump bad?

    WOW!!! That's an increase!

    I'm sure both are just fine tho, I know the kubota is a tad bit louder but i've seen them in red D arcs with 20000 plus hours and still kicking and used everyday.

    Which engine is better, Kubota or Perkins? For the vantage 400.

    We'll see what I find first. It'd be nice to find a good deal on a vantage 400 and be set up for a few years. Honestly, the 305 would be just fine for most of what I need.
