    Thanks Rob, it was either that or buy a new one, considering this machine had only ran like 10' of wire, this WAS like new till the board popped. A new one wasnt in the budget lol. Practice my welding and finally use some gas. Helps my motivation level too.

      Get yourself a pack of these. It'll keep the dust and crud that settles on the wire spool from getting into the liner. So your drive motor doesn't have to work harder.
      Did you notice how much tighter the LCAs were with the plates welded on. I recommend them every time

      I never had the 69 on the road so not sure of the "difference". But I'm sure it'll be substantial. I gotta do the same on our 67 as well.
      Pack of?? No link/pic
      Thanks

          I have used a chunk of scotch brite and a binder clip for years. learned it at the last place I worked, the flux core welders swore by it.

            Yeah I'm having troubles tracking the "weld-aid" stuff down up here in Canuckistan. I may just do the scotch brite!

              Did you wet the scotch brite, or leave it dry?
              Thanks!:thumbsup:

              I leave it dry, use a different piece of scotch brite when I switch to stainless wire.
