I did most of mine with flux core and it worked fine. I did rent a tank and added gas to mine near the end as it just is easier but with that being said flux core will get the job done.

Best advice I ever got was when it sounds like bacon sizzling you have it just right. And who doesn't like bacon??

Flux core works fine on the floors, where your gonna hide the weld under seam sealer etc.

If you get into quarter panel work, it will indeed work but it will near double your prep time after you weld it. Also, gas gives you a much cleaner weld, its blowing the impurities away from your weld area. With flux core you will end up with a bunch of pin holes.

Be sure your using small wire, like 25. That makes a huge diff on finishing up the surface after you weld.

Bacon Sizzling - thats it D! I use that analogy teaching folk to weld every time.

But remember, when welding 18 - 22 ga car panels your really not welding. Your tacking, and I only hit it no more than it takes to get fussion, about the time it gets glowing, is right before it blows through. I hit it, really quick, touch it with a damp rag, move to the opposite side, hit it. Like tightening the wheel on a car, move around opposities. When I do panels its not really bacon frying its more a BZZZT move BZZZT move. Then just fill in the gap until you have full coverage.

Oh, big one. Do the corners last! As you work around its going to pull/move, I leave a little extra on the corners, radius the corners too. Squares dont want to line up well.

Hey, guys! I SUCK at figuring out these forums, except to find the right topic, and even that is rough on me, alot of times! I need serious help here, PLEASE! I a 68 Torino, Fairlane edition, and i bout an 87 460/C6 combo from a F250 truck. The engine/tranny combo only have 57,000 ORIGINAL miles on them, and I DON'T plan on going hog-wild with this, until I can afford it, and the engine starts to show some wear. I bought motor mounts (engine side) from a Mark 3 lincolon, running the 429, and left the 289 stock lowers in, as the research I've done says I can........
The big issue I am having now, is my stock 87 460 oilpan. It's front sump, and DEEP, but, that's tyhe problem! I was told this is the right pan to do this swap, but it doesn't fit. It hits the crossmember, and needs around 2-3 more inches, to go in where it needs to sit. Should I buy the correct pan, and, if so, which one do I need? OR, do I attempt to modify the pan I have, that has the drain plug at the lower rear, right where it hits? EVerything else has been thought out, planned, replanned, and fits correctly, EXCEPT the oil pan.

was also trying to look into the best way to stiffen the chassis so that I don't have to worry about the torque and HP causing the frame to flex. Any ideas?
