    Your unit would have the R-57 vacuum idler not to be confused with the earlier bellows idler used on the short hood SA200s.

    You can weld and grind with the idler pinned for high idle. An upgrade to the electronic idler system would address your concerns as you suspect.

    If you pin the idler you don't have to un pin the unit to weld. The 2 speed idler is purely a fuel saver. I have a SAE 400 with perkins diesel that has no factory idler on it. There used to be a company that made an aftermarket item called a grind ez that let the vacuum idler work like an electronic idler. The company is long gone though. There was another company that made a similar unit and I don't recall there name but they are also long gone. Hope this helped.
