I need to have my motor mount bracket re-welded so I can get the 02 back on the road. Please let me know. Thanks.

That mount is mild steel. You can help-arc it, but mig is just as good. From experience, it is a B**ch if everything is in place. Be real careful of your steering box. I wrapped mine with a fire cloth type material. Then all it di was get in the way;)

One other thing. That steel is light enough and the open flange on the mount is thin enough to #1 break, and if you are running to hot you just blow it away. Get some material of the same thickness and practice on it to make sure your settings are right and go. If using an auto set machine, put it on manual and find the right settings

The mount I am using is Stainless Steel (lee's mount) since I moved my motor back 1". The mount is off the car and marked, just need about 4 inches of weld. I need to buy a Tig badly!

Spend some time on millerwelds.com If you can pick up a used Synchrowave you can do your stick and tig with it. I had a 185 that I sold before moving west and it was excellent. So you have a link to Lee's site. I'm not familiar with that mount.
