Description

The other wire comnects to the pcb in the same place as the loose wire for the trigger in the old torch. i discarded this and added a small spade connector to the eurotoch wire as there was plenty of reach. you could of course use the existing wire and connect the two. You will need to remove the cover that holds the wire liner. this will hold the end of the wire feed tube of the connector and will need to be modified so that the tube is in the correct place. this will need either cutting out or use a dremmel to remove enough plastic so that the tube fits snugly in the correct place. Fit the connector's plastic housing to the front of the machine ensuring the wire freed tube is in alignment with the mechanism. you will need to remove the old torch. you will be left with the Main current feed wire and the switch feed wire left. connect the two hoses. the arrow will point towards connector and torch and indicates flow direction. the regulator feed hose connects to the input side.

Cut out hole.the hole will need to be larger then the brass body, so there is a gap to insulate it from the case. The Snap-on Pro-Mig 160 is a rebadged Cebora AS160 and so is quite a reasonable machine and it does have a gas solenoid valve. A Euroadaptor can be fitted but avoid the 'universal' adaptors - we have done a fair few conversions on this type of machine and always make up an adaptor specific to each machine as required. The main conductor and switch wire should be added the the stem of the euro connector with the supplied nuts and these adjusted to suit the way you are mounting the connector. mount the gas solenoid in a suitable place. Mine is in the wire bay on the bottom of the unit. this can go anywhere as long as you remember that the two tubes need to be routed from the gas bottle and to the torch connector.

The two small wires on the euro connector are the switch feeds. the old toched used the main conductor as one side of the switch and therefore one of these wire needs connecting to the euro connector. I added a suitably sized fork connector with the legs splayed a bit.

Fit the connector to the housing and the wire feed tube should be clamped down with the old plastic clamp that has been modified earlier. Assuming all is well run the wire up the torch and start welding. you may need to adjust the positioning of the torch assy to ensure correct alignment and also make sure that there is not too much tension of the feed rollers and the end of the connector feed tube is not to far away or you will get the wite birdsnesting on you.
