    We've been finding that if they are in the cold, things inside don't like to get frozen, so a Full quilted cover and a pan heater to keep things warm benifits the machines greatly. Aloota wind in them when running freezes stuff we don't want to freeze, is another reason for the cover.

    Though if your in a warm area, the machines tend to work ok

    Ahh, tough to change the HZ on them as everything is run through an encoder. Not the best idea of Millers cause it FREEZES IN THE COLD as does the electric solinoid tank vent Might take a note from Lincoln in which the Ranger 27hp 305G efi DOSEN'T USE AN ENCODER and has a upper tank non electric vent. IE, you need a full cover for the 325 for this and a few other reasons.

    I think the summer time over heat situation has been solved though.

    As for oil, a good quality 5-40 synthetic diesel oil ( as it has no additives)

    Use a ph2835 oil filter, laf5802 is the air filter.Those are Lubrifiner#s Way better than factory in this case.

    Just a note, while the Lincoln Ranger 305G EFI says in the books 25hp, I've only ever seen 1, The other 50 or so that have come in for setup have been 27hp, never the less, no encoder on any.

    The 325 like all the hybrid inverter type machines need a 1/0 stinger cable, you may have 2/0 going to the stinger whip, but most guys attach a much smaller stinger cable. As with all these hybrid machines the unit is sensing a feedback and can't pick it up with the tiny lead. We've determined that a min 1/0 lead is best. Then you'll find that arc control actually works after.


    Now if you think, well thats just too heavy, then you should be using a welding cable like CCI Exelelene, as its a light wt flexable zero noise cored cable. And that is all I sell here, after testing them all.
