I have a PT 185 and the torch gets hot while welding aluminum, I'm toying with the idea of comverting to a liquid cooled torch but the lincoln setup is a little salty... Has anyone done this with aftermarket components ie, Build your own cooler/ torch-cable combos?? If so I'd really like to get some ideas. The lincoln setup is like almost 400 without the cooler, 900 with.

You're right, the price of these things is a killer for most of us. If you want to build your own power cable, water hose, and gas hose, this company manufactures all the standard brass fittings you will need:
