    Sealey Gasless Welders

    you will find with that one the weld will stick to one surface as you cannot fine tune it (either min/max) nothing in between.mine (also crap) high/med/low on high it blows holes in the body medium it sticks to one side and low dont waste your time.small bottles of Argon gas last a few min,admittedly it did weld my filler pipe to my new fuel cap pretty well also i used it to weld my seats.but bodywork/panels its useless.granted i,m no expert with a mig,but if your going ahead try and look for one with a dial for the power the same as the speed of wire. i spend more time freeing the wire up replacing the flow wheels and dismantling the gun as the wire seems to stick in the shroud etc.the one i bought takes 2 folk to lift it but not used it yet.

    Sealey Gasless Welders

    in my opinion you will be wasting your time using a gasless welder outside in windy conditions,I,m not sure if gasless actually means welding without gas and a lot depends on what it is your welding.a lot of folk use Co2 instead of Argon etc (gasless welding butnot quite as your using something to substitute the gas) also how neat you want the welding to look.you will spend more time grinding and cleaning it up than you will welding its not the price of the welder but refilling the gas bottles makes it expensive as nowadays you have to have an account for the bottle (unless you know someone who will do it on the side) recently bought a mig 160 amp big piece of kit compared to my last one.my old one a migmate (more a hobby welder) cant weld anything outside esp in windy conditions always resort back to my stick welder,

    3sge revs up and down when cold

    its the coolant sensor in the elbow for the ECU not the gauges etc,mine was faulty cleaned the throttle body etc and was still the same.turned out it was the connector for the sensor (green plug) it was Chris that pointed it out to me,perfect now

    3sge revs up and down when cold

    yes your right,the other thing to check is the water sensor at the elbow,if its faulty or a bad connection the car will struggle to idle on cold start up.

    3sge revs up and down when cold

    is it similar to the one on the 205.cleaned mine with quick release oil and gunk spray,used old gaskets as they were fine,

    number plates

    prob been asked before but what is the smallest legal size numberplate you can have.never understood how a motorbike plate can be tiny and still legal,is your eyesight better when looking at a motorbike than a car ???

    petrol smell

    thanks for that i cut the vent off,still have it here.didnt think it was needed as the old filler cap i dont think has a vent,fuel tank is vented is it not,will get a look at it.

    petrol smell

    have noticed ever since i replaced the old filler cap with this aerostyle one (honda cbr) the inside of the car seems to have a petrol smell now. this fits over the old filler pipe which is external to the inside of the body. any ideas

    265 x 35 x 18s

    anyone any idea if these are to wide for a celica st205,not worried about them fitting in the wheel arch but more the surface area on the road
  15. so all my hard work over xmas seems to have been a waste,things are not looking good cold engine as it will not start didnt bother putting any oil down the cylinders,also tried it with the throttle body removed,timing appears to be correct seemed to get worse as soon as i fixed the water leak. so what to do now,seems strange all cylinders are the same,when it was running it would not idle ok 600 rpm to 900 rpm 2000rpm seemed smooth over 4000 and it got very noisy but didnt misfire or anything ,i put it down to the exhaust blowing or vibration somewhere def have to strip it right down now i think, oil leak has appeared aswel

    Unplugging negative on battery ?

    dont mind me asking Askari but have you noticed and drop in voltage between the engine bay and batt in boot,just moved mine in to the boot.had a batt charger on 13.4v at batt,at engine 125 amp inline fuse 12.7v is that normal you think. Scott try a batt charger on for a good while its possible the batt is not getting enough charge in it while running

    anyone experienced this before

    no just the normal halfords antifreeze (saying that it was over -10 at the weekend) stuck with this screw/bolt,do i have to take all the aircon off to get to the bracket that holds the alternator adjuster
  18. 3sgte water pump pulley inside timing cover sheared right off timing belt started car up monday morning,sounded rough but put that down to the cold,went an had a coffee while letting it warm up,15 min later went out to find steam coming out and engine had stopped,looking farther rad hose was frozen,despite having antifreeze in it (3yrs now), so an expensive lesson learnt,hopefully no internal damage
