Re: Plasma Cutter Questions

I have a thermal dynamics 38 works great cuts 1/4 like its butter. Just make sure you use a good air drier water kills the tips and there around 20 bucks a pop. For a 38 that is.

Re: Transmission Oil Cooler??

There is no such thing as to low of oil temp. Any tranny running over 150 deg is doing more damage than good. If you use the rad put cooler after it. what you will find if you do it both way's it will run hotter going throw the radiator than without. Normal operating temp is lower then your normal e...

Re: Where to buy DOM tubing?

Last time I checked with WV steel 2" was 17 and change a foot back in the summer and they don't stock it. They want 9 something for 1.5 by .120 and that was for 200' order. I'll pay the extra 75 dollars in gas and trailer to carwash in union KY. But wont be needing mine till late spring early summer.

Re: Where to buy DOM tubing?

Sorry guys I pm'd carwash today and those prices are still good. I checked several different places and 2" .250 is going from 16 to 23 dollars a foot. Guess I should have asked why his hasn't gone up.

Sorry to say it but vec is right interco does not make a balanceable tire. If you want one you can balance then you need to get bfg's and there not that easy. I once had to mount 12 tires in 285/75r16 before i got four tire balanced. And you would be surprized how out of balance your wheels are befo...

Fairmont, motown, maybe preston county, buckhannon, etc I'll take back roads. I don't plan on going interstate EVER. The interstate is not...

Re: Let's beat the dead horse some more

U still have to pass road side inspection . So if it won't pass a normal inspection it will fail a road side but they don't tend to fool with us unless it looks unsafe.

Re: How to set up my Dana 30

If you put any type of locker or spool in the front it will put 1 way under a load and the other when you let of. The pull you get while under a load it some what controlable the no load pull is a harder to control. So if you are in a tight spot hard accelartion would not be advised. But 200 hp is a...
