If the pump has been running dry, (lines loose) then I would suspect the pump is now toasted either way.

I can’t recall on those, the previous generation, the proofmeter cable was driven off the...

So he didn’t ask if you wanted to buy it, you actually bought it…. slightly different scenario.

Parts are plenty for the 9N and they are simple to work on. I’d still fix it up and that should...

Depends, slightly more horsepower, about 35 versus about 22.

The three cylinder engines were ok, but having done things like water pumps on them, that is a royal PITA job to do.

Whatever is cheap that you have on hand.

Tim will now figure he will need a cylindrical grinder to redo this part. He’ll spend 3-5000 to buy one and tool it up.

Next will be a heat treat...

Personally up here we tried to avoid doing logs, wood etc unless there was snow on the ground, it helps to keep the dirt out of the bark.

Guess in Georgia that’s not really an option.

Part of that may be due to the spring sagging and then rubbing on the leadscrew. Might be better to let it turn with it, versus rubbing all the time?

Bearing help

Heat will expand both the hub and race, and the race being a thinner cross section, it will expand more, due to more heat absorbtion.

The 30A would be for aluminum for other uses. The bore welder runs steel, and is a totally self contained setup other than the power supply. (Which for me would be the XMT.)

Good to know. There are some used ones around here for 2-3000 Can, so have been debating. It looks like there are ways to roughly date them by serial number.

A 350 is basically a bigger brother to a 300, and in the newer 350’s it becomes the largest of the series that can run off single phase or three phase I believe.

XMT and a spool gun?

Looking at maybe getting a Miller XMT 350 in the near future, and curious, has anyone here used a spool gun with one?

Looks like the Miller 30A gun would be the one of choice for the machine, just...
