Got the window motor mount welded up & painted yesterday;

Put it on today, still need to finish the wiring this afternoon;

It moves pretty quick, but should work fine! ~~ grnspot

Thats going to be one nice easy to use blower. I'd like to know how it works on the 314. I have a 314 and was wondering how they do with a blower.

I had a 37A on a 74-112 (12HP), worked great! Of course the 49 is quite a bit bigger than the 37A & just two more HP, so we'll see. I wanted the hydrostat & hydraulic lift of the 314 over the 112's gear drive & electric lift. ~~ grnspot

nice idea on the window motor!

BTW next time up the controls on your welder. Your welds are wayyyyyy too cold there is not much penetration in your metal

An example, on my 180A mig welder with self sheilded wire (no gas) I have A-B-C-D-E on voltage control, for your metal thickness I would try D or even E. Looks like you were welding with B.

I say that to help, I am not aware of your welding skills, you might know what I said (or more) and simply didn't care about those welds.

I know, I was using my little 135 mig instead of breaking out the stick! Not really heavy enough for the 1/4" stock. The inside weld was the bad one! ~~ grnspot

Looking really good and you are giving me plenty of ideas for my model 49 on the 120.
