I was just looking to buy a welder and decided on a Lincoln 305G efi, why I was looking for info on the internet and read a whole lot and came to the choice of my new Lincoln.
People basically said ford and Chevy, a personnel choice. But I came across hearing about the mother boards giving trouble. So I said to myself a welder bouncing around on a truck the electrics have to be not liking it. I had a ranger 8 on the back of a ford super duty with the 7.3 and from new to over 500,000 miles and in a 10 year time span, that ranger 8 is still striking a arc. So that is why I bought my new Lincoln 305G efi.
