i'm making the lower lift arms for my 3pth. i got all the measurements but don't have angle to bend it. i have looked at alot of pics and 45degres looks about right. if one of you guys can get out that trusty protractor it would help me out. i figure the bend in the top arms is the same as the lower arms. i also just finished up making a muffler. it's all tacked up, but i'm afraid to weld it ( i'm a 50/50 welder) 50% not bad and 50% garbage.

I'll try to get a look at one of mine today. On your welding....go over every weld twice & you should get that number up to 75%!:D

Get some of the same metal you made your muffler from and practice, adjusting the heat and the speed you move. After a little practice you'll be able to weld an ice cube to a screen door. It's like anything else, practice, practice, practice and, don't give up. Good luck.

yesterday went to dad to practice my welding. started off with the arc, not good kept blowing thru. then the mig, good for a inch then blow thru. more practice. since we had the welders out i made up all the seat brackets. thicker melt good welds. i guess the guy that owned it before me, put a aftermarket seat on and throw away the other parts that would not fit. one more ? on my 1650, after sitting all night, i'll start it and get white smoke not alot but it clears up right away. would it be weak rings or bad valve guide since it has ACR

Thanks for covering for me Larry. Been crazy here the last 2 days. Family Christmas dinners, vacuum pump motor failure in milk parlor, & parlor water heater on the fritz.
