Subject: Brazing

Bruce, this is in response to your earlier question concerning brazing.
First you asked if you should use rosin or acid core, you should use an acid
core solder or use  a separate  brush on acid flux. As for brazing, I would
not recomend a propane torch with regular brazing rod. You probably could get
by using that type of torch with a silver brazing alloy (45%silver) and
silver brazing flux. This would be as strong as brazing rod and would melt at
about 400 degrees lower temp. (When brazing, make sure that you are not
unsoldering anything near by) Cracks in your radiatior might be resulting
from lack of suspension between body and radiator. You might install rubber
grommets between radiator and body.

Hope  this is helpful,

Subject: Arc welding/mig welding

This is in respons to a question regarding the use of a arc welder on body
work. Better to use a mig welder but if you must use a arc welder, find a
supply of 1/16" electrodes and use a skip weld technique, don't try to weld a
continuous seam or you will probably burn through the sheet metal. Hope this
is helpful, Andrew Sheppard GW89 (home today recuping from a pinched nerve
after taking some guy's welding tank out of his trunk, older age is catching
up with me :-( Just can't throw those things over my shoulder like I usta!:-)
