Important

Well bought a plasma cutter and most of the stuff to get it running. I think Ill end up needing a compressor soon now.
Do they make a good compressor thatís 110v? I hardly ever use one now so it would really only be for the plasma so i donít think a 220v is necessary unless itís my only option. If it is my only option all have to add another 220 outlet to run the compressor and plasma at the same time too which will probably involve adding a sub panel.

Re: Important

I've got a 60gal in my shop I unplug it amd plug the plasma in to run. If set correctly and Im not burning out tons of stuff it runs low, kicks the plasma off at about the point I'm ready for a break. Getting ready to do some rewire so i can leave the compressor plugged in with a separate leg for the welders and plasma. I am also looking to plumb another 60gal tank for a total or 120gal im my system soon too. Run a really good dryer, trust me not running one eats consumables fast!

Re: Important

It's quieter than a 30 gallon oil less compressor...

I have it in my small garage, but we don't close the door or anything when its running.

Ah crap. I guess I own a stupid zj now.

For $400 it was impossible to pass up. Has mild damage to the driver fender and a small dent in both driver doors, but other than a little rust on the tailgate, the body and underside is amazingly clean. Kid said the "flywheel was broke" and the starter wouldn't engage and the gauges weren't working...wiggled the grounds and threw a fresh battery on and it fired right up and runs perfectly. Gauges are intermittent, it has a loose ground somewhere because the locks click every time the gauges come back to life. Need a lot of little things, but overall it's really solid. Now I need to decide if I want to fix it up and flip it or keep it. For $400 if I keep it, I think it will be getting built a little. 4.0, 242 case and 160k miles. Engine is really quiet and trans seems to shift perfectly...

Anyone have a parts zj? I could use some things

As in steering linkages? Don't think their is much that's bolt in except the Currie Currectlync or a V8 ZJ tierod, all others you'd need to ream or drill for inserts in the knuckles and pitman arm for 1 ton tie rods.
