I just bought an 88 amp Lincoln wire feed welder and was wondering if
it's heavy duty enough to weld an exhuast manifold crack for a 10vt?

Any tips on how to do this? I heard someone heated his manifold in
his BBQ grill ahead of time.

I've got a bunch of manifolds from three different cars. All have the
same crack on cylinder #3, as well as some cracking at the collector.
Luckily, I had an uncracked one to put on my car during a recent
upper end rebuild.
