    Little done. I got all the bed liner installed, scored 10$ Harley exhaust on c.l. And got one fish in the boat.

    Looks like I have to upgrade tapatalk to upload pics. Grrrrr. Will do that later.

    No prob my man cant wait to see you up and running. Excellent deal on those mufflers. Like I texted you, you may want to weld on a 2" adapter for using standard 2" flex pipe. Easier to find at any hardware store though I would recommend spending a little extra money and go all stainless otherwise youll be doing like I did and replacing it a year or so down the road. Soon your engine will be there hopefully and then the reql fun begins.

    Yep. Already found stainless flex pipe. Just waiting to see what kind of redneck engineering is needed to build headers.

    Y'all using stainless headers as well?

    Yup all stainless except the few inches of stock exhaust. What I did was make 2 to 1 pipes on either side that slide over the stock exhaust pipes. Just gota find the right size pipes to fit. And u just cut the exhaust off leaving a few inches so you have something to clamp to. Or you can find pipes the same size and make the flanges that go onto the heads, but I havent looked into that one. I just went down the the stainless dealer with a piece of the exhaust pipe and looked around until I found a pipe that fit snug enough over it and bought I think 5 or 6 feet of it.

    MIG welding stainless is easy; use 308 wire; {309} to combine stainless and carbon. The usual choice for the filler when welding stainless to mild is 309L./309 is over alloyed stainless steel (19/10) so when diluted by the mild steel gives a deposit approximately like 308L / 304L. Works fine with argon gas. The best gas for MIG welding stainless is 97.5% Argon +2.5% CO2. Keep it clean!!!

    Will 309 work on straight stainless as well?

    Still haven't updated tapatalk, so no pics. Front eye is welded on. Inside is painted and bed liner is installed. Right now it's flipped upside down and waiting on the ups man to bring my gator glide. Hopefully my 84 will be here tomorrow. I hope to pic up my cage and engine stand material tomorrow. I'm kinda excited to weld on something beside aluminum.

    Do not recommend it; it is not an all purpose alloy.

    Hi Guys,Yes you can mig weld stainless which is what I did on my entire structure. If you're welding stainless to stainless use 308 wire and if you're welding stainless to mild steel then use 309 wire. You need to use special gas though which is a blend of three. The recommended gas is Argon/Helium/CO2 but it is VERY expensive so I used an alternative of Argon/Nitrogen/CO2. It was much cheaper and I was really pleased with it's performance. Praxair handles it by the name of Stargon.

    Thanks for all the stainless info. Still haven't updated tapatalk, so still no pics. I however have been busy. Bottom of boat is primed with gator glide base. I built a jig and started on my two main hoops. My 084 also came in. It's new, still in the crate. There is plenty of work to keep me going.

    I was just looking around for something and saw this. I use a lighter return spring for my carb. This allows me to set the foot throttle at a rpm I want and it will stay there. It will slowly start losing rpms but for the most part stays where I put it. The only bad thing about this is that if I want to slow the boat in a hurry I have to put my toe under the pedal and lift the pedal up. I like it though because I can set it to cruise and don't need to have my foot on the throttle all the time.
