    Can you guys tell me more about the 4943?

    I have been bouncing back and forth between 4340 and 5356. I use 4043 on oil pans as it's supposed to take the heat and 5356 on turbo piping bits.

    As a side note, we have this stuff here called "Formula 88". It's a great degreaser and is "supposed" to be biodegradable. I soak the pans in 100% solution for a couple hours and it comes out looking brand new. Some oil always seems to stay in the casting, but that stuff is a night and day difference for welding - takes nearly no elbow grease at all, but you have to have the time to soak it.
    Here is an old thread on 4943..... Good Stuff...........

      To me, it seems like 4943 wets in better on the cast jobs and it flows nicely. There was a good forum post about it a while back. The Hobart aluminum guru got on there and laid it all out for us. He even called my LWS to let them know it's available and how to order it. I don't know if they're still sending out samples of the stuff anymore though. <br />
      <br />
      I enjoy using the stuff and I very rarely know what grade of aluminum I'm working with. Most repair work and fabbercobbled stuff with whatever I can get my hands on at the scrap yard. Total Roadkill stuff.
      My shop is in Pompano Beach, FL. It's in the signature. Tried to edit the bits under my profile page, but it kept telling me something about custom field can't be edited. *shrug*.

                  I wish. Maybe this year I will be able to afford it. With 4 kids, one in college and still building the shop up, money is tight. The CNC machine is on the fritz, that is priority. Kinda the reason I singed up here and was asking about converting my Sync to do Dynasty-esque welds lol.

                    I guess the signature doesn't show up on the app version of this forum. I use the iPhone app 90% of the time.
