Credit where credit is due.

This is where you can start playing.  Hook up the welding leads and check all connections.  Wear gloves and a #10 shade helmet to protect your eyes.  Place the ground clamps on a piece of thick scrap and put a rod in the holder.  Look around for one last time and be sure there are no fire hazzards and adequate ventilation.  Fire up your welder.  Check the output voltage, it should be around 80-100 volts then lay some beads.  If the engine sounds like it is loaded too much try smaller rods and then review this site and try some of the suggestions diodes, light bulbs, different pulley size etc.  There are numerous resources on how to weld on the internet.  The biggest thing  I would do wrong is rush.  Take your time and watch the puddle sometimes you have to move the rod in circles and sometimes deep u's.  you want to see the puddle melting the metal to be attatched.  Its sort of like moving your finger through a puddle of water and having the puddle follow as you drag it accross the table
