    Ah, got you. So do it on the work but not on the area about to be welded.

    Thanks.

    When mine doesn't start, I mess with the ground to get a good connection to the part.
    I made my ground on my new MM251 with a hose clamp and a vice grip. Learned that from an old timer, and works great! I don't like the ones from the store. Gonna do that to my 200 tomorrow...
    I'm not late...
    I'm just on Hawaiian Time

I would switch to 1/16" (3/32" should work also) tungsten and taper it to 30 degrees with a .010 flat on the tip. Be very sure you have a good ground. When I first got my Dynasty it would sometimes do the same thing, I removed the cover and ran a very clean .009 feeler thru the points and have had no trouble since. Just stuff to try, let us know if you work it out.
    Where are the points located inside the cover? I removed it but didnt find the points

    Thank you very much
