40 Pounds Of Power

The new Invertig 221 AC/DC inverter TIG welder from HTP America allows you to produce professional welds with all types of metal, with a full 220 amps of welding power, and it only weighs 40 pounds. It’s the only welder in its class with independent AC amperage adjustment, giving you precise control over the heat input to both the work piece and the tungsten by allowing you to separately adjust the electrode negative and electrode positive amperage. The 221 also offers the ability to adjust the AC frequency from 20 Hz to 200 Hz, the high AC frequency giving a more focused arc with greater control.

The 221’s high-speed DC pulse makes intricate work on mild steel, 4130, stainless, inconel, and titanium a breeze. It allows you store up to 64 separate welding programs and provides outstanding performance when stick welding in either AC or DC modes. There are three models to choose from: air cooled, water cooled, or dual voltage. For more information, contact HTP America at (800) 872-9353 or www.htpweld.com.

These high-output, in-tank electric fuel pumps are direct bolt-in replacements for more than 65 popular EFI applications.

The 340 is also ideal for use as a universal replacement for applications that require more flow to support forced air power adders, such as turbo and supercharged applications. This pump is available with three different inlet styles, and utilizes an innovative turbine-style pumping mechanism, which won’t be damaged by the increased load of PWM systems.

Centerville Auto can help with induction for these engines with this new six-deuce log manifold.
