Doing a feildstone walways WITH mortared joints. Can I lay onto Crusher run base or do I have to pour a pad ?

You will have to pour a pad. You will have too much joint cracking with each unit heaving individually.

Thanks Chris - Do I need a 3 or 4 inch pad ? Wire inside ? 6 inch footing on the sides ? Thanks again. Never done a wet lay before.

I would pour a 4" pad. Make sure your base is compacted. No wire or footer necessary unless you are talking about some major loads (hot tub, ect.)
