    To Answer bull dogs Question:
    What you do is get a air cooled torch, argon bottle, 2% thoriated tungsten,
    You are then ready to weld, you then need to hook your ground cable to the torch and your stinger now becomes your ground.
    You then just scratch start. Its pretty easy.
    The set up I just gave you is not for aluminum However.

      Peace,
      pjseaman,
      Thanks for the offer,I finished the install before I posted my question. I fought this install for several hours because of clearance issues with the INSTALLED interior panels [plastic] and the clearance for the weld was about 3/4 of an inch. Finally extended the tung. on a "rigged up" shorty that I fabbed on-site, grabbed an exam. mirror and "got r done" ! ! Just made me feel rather humble. Don't want word of mouth to reach out to other customers on this one problem job. Keep the links coming, I'm still trying to compile the info I need not to get in a jam like this again.

          I have the WeldCraft SF-225 water cooled torch. Neat in that it has interchangeable heads. So you can use your 17 sized parts, or change down to a 20 head for in close or even a 24 head for really close in.

          Got it from Arc-Zone. Call him and talk to him, nice guy, very knowledgeable about torches.

          He also carries the MT-125 which if you can't get inwith that one, you have one tight space.

              Pinecone and Andy,

              That's a great torch! I like the interchageable heads. Just swap them out. I am not wild about all the different consumables, but I have everything from a 12-20 anyway, so what's one more. They are great for cylinder walls and other tight spots. Just ask Andy-no pun intended.

                  MACH4, There is a chassis cert about 80 miles from you this weekend. I think I may have met you and your partner there last year and was wondering if you are the same person (with a cavalier chassis last year) ....and if you were going to be there. Jeff
