The EZweld is a Tig filler rod that is specifically designed for cast iron to cast iron or cast iron to steel welding. Website states that the filler material uses a special form of iron. Website is Home - EZ Weld TIG Wire. The new pulley is cast iron as I couldn't find a machined steel pulley (plenty of stamped steel pulleys which are no good for this application). Knowing cast iron's amazing reputation for welding, I did some research before trying to weld the stuff. I know about N99 rod, while testing/practicing I could weld with it, but the welds weren't all that clean looking. Somehow in one of my searches the Ezweld Tig wire popped up, I was intrigued so I bought some to try. The ezweld filler rod went down really nice during my practice welds. When the weather warms up again I'll have another go at some cast iron - I have a Cummins v504 diesel engine that needs the exhaust manifold welded back together.
I don't know how much LtDan is making there in the PRofCali... he must be doing better than me. I can't even come close to affording one of those fancy newfangled trucks . I know that the new automatics are really good in terms fuel economy, but I'm still stuck in the dark ages of a manual transmission.There is something primal about rowing a non-synco-ed 10 speed transmission .Just don't do like @Lt.Dan and tease us with OBS mods whilst purchasing a 6.7
