People usually don't "clean" things with abrasive power tools. The description of what you want to do just sounds odd...

So its going to take you like 6+ weeks to clean the intake and valley pan area? A hot-tanking of the intake would only cost you a few bucks and would get a lot more than you'd be able to...

actually it is fine. Thats how I build the CJ8 mounts, just use gussets (and then bolt them in anyways) lol

I've done all the welding with my lincoln 110, even on the trailer. I haven't cracked a weld yet. you just have to use good geometry to maximize your weld surface area and try to spread the load as uch as possible. 3000 miles on the trailer without failure, broke 2 motors, a transmission case, 2 ujoints, a windsheild, a top, a shock and various other things, but no welds...

Are you wheeling it yet and stressing the frame with flex in addition to the motor's torque?

No, that was your shitty driving.

I've been having thread flashbacks lately. This was the second time that I was able to go directly to a single old post to get exactly the dig I needed. :tonka:

just take your time, and if you have any doubts about the integrity of the weld, add a gusset or 2
