    NOOB from Danville,VA

    Hello fellows, My name is Mike i just picked up my 2nd mm/d-50 my frist one was a 85 d-50 that truck was great till the rust got ahold of it badly. So after years of other cars, truck i finally got a hold of another one. The new one is a 87 mm i love it its not perfect but for $600 you cant beat it this one has the g63b, 5 speed. But ive got slight motor problems with it #3 is dead the guy had said something that the rings could be broken so when i got it home i let it cool down pulled the plug and poor some oil in there (old trick to see if compression builds) hooked the gauge to it and still no compressionso hopefully it has a blown headgasket or burnt valves any ways here are some pics of herClick image for larger version.

    well when my miller took a crap..i went to harbor freight and got it..had it for about 5 months and i use it for everything. I love it...most of my friends went and bought one too after they used it. i talked to a few guys online before i bought it, and they own shops and they had 0 complaints. with the regulator welder and helmet i paid like 400 and that was with a 2 year full replacement warranty. even if its not broke you can take it back and get a new one...then re new the 2 year warranty for like $25.


    so yeah its ok...i have used it to for the body drop, frame work, other vehicle related things for friends.

    I was going to txt you but it seems a little late to do so. But if you feel like driving to Denton NC there is a white max there for 700. It has front end damage from a deer. But that is the only one I found that was a half way good price
