Best welder I ever used was off the back of a tractor, good old PTO driven welder 3 phase, welds up I beams beautiful.Many industrial welders are 2 phase or 480V. My welder (BOC Smootharc advanceII 250a inverter mig/mma) can be used at 240, 415 or 480V. The amperage is limited to 180a when used with a single phase 240v 15a outlet. The full 250a is available when using 415 or 480V power sources.
Mine is connected to 2 phase 480V as I don't have access to 3 phase in my area. 2 phase is commonly referred to as 'farm power' around here.
Maybe so but easiest way to go(imo because I have a welder and know how to use it) and IRS Commodores don't get overtightened by blokes with big armsMe personnally...Drill out...Use a HT nut and bolt, with a washer inbetween the nut and shocker bush.....Honestly, welding is way over the top for this application.....IRS equipped commodores only have a bolt, with washer that holds the shock in place at the base....
I wouldn't bother welding, drill a 10-12mm hole about 3/4 in as I mentioned now the 3rd time and get a HT 150mm long half threaded bolt and locknut and 2 roll pins. measure and Cut the bolt where there no thread to the length of the drilled out hole, drill out 2 holes thru the centre of the boss and thru the bolt to take the roll pins. Its all it needs.Maybe so but easiest way to go(imo because I have a welder and know how to use it) and IRS Commodores don't get overtightened by blokes with big arms
Actually if the op wants to drive up here (probably $100 fuel) I will fix it for him.Not much of an option I know but an option just the same.
I've had people drive here from the Goldie to buy roof racks off me
And here you go again !!!!Is that because you live in a wreakers yard? Vin said your Mr backyard wreaker.
