make sure you get good penetration


I'm sorry - I was napping there for a while. We're still talking about welding here, right? :bigrofl:

the freaking pulley on the stub shaft im gonna use is pissing me off. ive drilled the hex nut bolts out, torched it up and down, 50 times, and now sprayed it with lube and awesome to clean the crap out between the inside of the pulley and the shaft. im gonna scream soon.

How do you plan to cut the Stainless steel? Why did you choose stainless for this. Torch is out of the question. Cutoff wheel for square plate. Hole saw and cutting fluid for round. If you have access to a plasma cutter you can use that for both.
Be careful with the heat near the crankshaft. You can cause yourself all kinds of grief if your not cautious.

I'm not an expert in this area but my limited understanding of stainless steel is that it can be very difficult to machine and/or weld which I would think would make it undesirable for this type of application. Please correct me if I'm missing something here but would not mild steel actually work better in this situation?

Boss is correct. Cutting, drilling, and welding Stainless can be very frustrating for the novice. It is much more prone to warping during the welding process.
Yours was very good advise.

i thought my post went through but i guess it didnt. the only thing im using the stainless for is the plate im making to go over where im taking the hydro pump off of so it doesnt burn out with no fluid. it was free and it will work. everything else will be made with plain old steel.

OK - I think that makes more sense. The way it sounded to me I thought you were about to really create some difficult work for yourself. No point fighting battles you don't have to.

the stainless worked just fine for the plate i made to cover the hole. i used a jigsaw to cut it, it was 1/8th inch, and i used a wood blade. worked great.

so i went to start it, mind you there 2 things broken that connect to the starter, but it still started for me when the guy did it. and all the starter does is spin, it doesnt even spin the flywheel. any ideas? it worked fine a few days ago.

Pull the starter and have it checked at an auto parts store. That will determine if the starter is your problem.
