    Went to weld up a carrier tonight to lincoln lock a Toyota axle for a trip this weekend. Cleaned it out the best I could with carb and brake cleaner, put air to it and let it sit so that I wouldn't start a fire with the welder. Started in on it and the beads just sucked donkey balls. I figured I was just burning off whatever was left in there since the longer I was welding, the better they looked (but still not up to par). I was mostly done when I went to fiddle with the welder settings because the carrier and gears were so hot, glanced at the gas regulator, and realized:

    1. I'm a moron.
    2. I'm an idjit.
    3. I shouldn't be allowed to breed.
    4. I forgot to turn on the gas.
    5. I just turned a Toyota third member into a 50 pound piece of scrap because of contaminated welds.

    Don't feel so bad.

    The money I had for a new brakes set up for my rig, I went and spent it on a D60. So now I have an awesome set of axles (D60, 14B/FF) and absolutely NO BRAKES :doah: :doah: !!

    Maybe you and I should start a new forum here :D :haha: !!

    Nothing like taking your rig around the block after an oil change. The problem was I forgot to add the new oil. :haha: :p:


    I felt so proud to tell Dad about doing it all by myself when he came home from work. That was 11 years ago in my grandma's car. :p:

    i also did that when i was about 12 or 13. it was in a datsun lil husler pickup. i actually ran it for 2 weeks, before my dad noticed it when he drove it. amazingly only thing i wrecked was the tensioner for the timing chain. now that was a reliable pos. lol

    Yep, I think anyone who has welded has done that once. That is usually all it takes.
