Tig Welder

Bent my budget a bit and bought a tig welder.. Spent the day getting things wired up and ready to go.. Now if my shaky old hands can still do that kind of work I will be fine.. Here is hoping..

How could anyone not dig this beautiful post? Ah, old car and wreck in one. Plus help from co-workers and car owner. You must be doing something mighty right. Nice work so far and it sure is whopperjawed out back. Enjoy that fix!

Since you have the long pump it wont be a problem to get a pulley ,that is press on,Advance has a special puller and a press to reinstall it,on loaner tool program,pay a deposit and get your money back when you return it,,or keep it for the deposit,,most i just keep and let them have the deposit,which is the cost of the tool anywy.

I found this which looks the same and as you mentioned it says fits 76 and up:

A pic of mine below.
Yes, no key way on the press fit. Key way is older style.

The one I linked to may be available locally.

There looks to be just enough space for the second groove. It's just the pics looks tight.

if you haven't done it in a while sharpen a couple tungstens. Nothing more annoying than being rusty tig welding, and it's like that every time I take a break for a couple months. Not easy but so rewarding once everything comes together. I got project I need to tig welding but I feel like making another project just to practice. Never ending expense and time with TIG. Who are these people that say TIG takes less time? That doesn't apply to me.

Got the wheels off the car and was very pleased.
All wheel cylinders and shoes look new and not a drop of fluid leaking.

Drums have at least 1/16" left.
