ha ha ha ha!!!!
sure thats the way we all weld them.
just a little hint if you want the weld to hold really good and your not a pro at welding just heat the parts your going to weld together, but not to much.
my rear diff was welded over 10 years ago ,and is still holding together.

haha i am a pro. but im still going to heat them a little cause i just have a 110v welder. im going to use flux core cause its hotter. unless i can do it at BCIT. going to go in and talk to my instructor and see if i can.

so weld it just like that, rev it to the moon and dump teh clutch right? i better weld the bearrings too to make sure it doesnt fall apart :D

Im not a pro welder or anything, but I dont think a 110 will be good enough for the job.

i have a buddy back on vancouver island who did his with a 110v with hardwire a couple years ago.
i figure as long as i pre heat it enough it shoudl be ok. im also using flux core (e71-Tgs) so it will be a bit hotter than hard wire.

im going to get a spare third to weld up, incase i fuck up or it doesnt hold, or i just plain dont like it for my DD. hten i can just swap in my old one.

haha now how did my machine find its way out to JJs?
just kidding. im outa town this weekend any way so i woudlnt be using it any way. like i said, going to see if i can do it at BCIT. if i can, should i do stick or hard wire? or flux core for that matter?

oh a side note, just got smoked by a honda on my way home from work.
he turned right from the center lane and didnt shoulder check. truck seems fine to me less a little boddy damage. cant say the same for his car. pics will be in the carange section in a few mintues

I would run flux core or something with a lot of pen. It's hardened steel so technically it needs to be pre and post heated.

im thinking E7018 would be my best bet. 1/8 rod at 120 - 130 amps should do it. maybe 5/32 and run it at 160 - 180 amps.
