    So now I flipped the bearing, nothing, flipped the Ds 180*, still vibrating...

    Im about to take it off again, and try to move the yoke front of the bearing left or right a notch, to see if it can be better aligned... but i doubt it... last solution would be to bring the ds and get it balanced... but I'd really like to know whats wrong

    Just talked to a mechanic friend, he said maybe the yoke just in front of the carrier bearing has to be flipped 90*.... makes sens. I remember taking care of putting it back align with the others but maybe it wasn't at first...

    Got my harbor freight titanium 140 today. Got it set up and laid a few flux core beads since I don’t have any gas. All I’ve been using is a shitty Amazon flux welder before, so take everything I say with a grain of salt.

    Build quality of the welder is awesome. Metal everything, digital gauges, nice knob feel (hehe) quality ground wire and mig gun, etc.

    Burns very smooth with minimal spatter. I can’t wait to weld more shit with it! With coupon was $380 and paid $60 for a 2 year extended warranty.




    Bottom weld is first one, middle second, top third.

    LOL that’s my basement/first floor. It’s a weird set up.

    First floor=basement/work area/where the front door is.
    Second floor=kitchen/living/dining room
    Third floor=bedrooms and bathroom

    I have no garage so I do all welding outdoors.

    Decided to try something new with my “cockpit”. Instead of using my phone I’ll use my tablet for Spotify and navigation. No real reason, but I want to see if I’ll like the larger screen.

    Those look a lot better than the welder you were previously using. Looking good man!

    The one reason I hate the big tablets for Nav. is it looks like it's in the way pretty good for the HVAC controls. But in all honesty I haven't seen a set up where on isn't in the way of something in any vehicle. I would love to find a good solution for better nav than my phone since it's such a small screen and my primary camera.
