Roger, did you end up welding that crack in that thin part of that 272 clutch cover I traded you?  Wondering can that thin be done.

No I have not welded that yet but that crack will not be a problem.   I will do it after I am done with the 3750.

Here is another crack in a clutch cover, for I think a 8500.
I had a lot of trouble with pitting when welding this one.   I think the casting was not very good and seemed to be very porous. 






With a crack of that size you'll have troubles getting the oil and oxidized material out of the crack. Ditch cut the crack until it's very thin and just commute to having the backside look terrible.

srcarr52, you are probably correct.   It seemed like everytime I put the tig to it that another pit popped up out of no where.   Someone will have to use some JB Weld for filler.

Here is another weld job on a Wright blade saw that had a piece that was broken completely off.   The saw was restored by the owner and turned out very nice.

Spark plug thread repair.  Someone even stripped the save-a-thread.

I am glad you showed that.   I do not believe I have ever seen anyone weld a plug hole before and cut in new threads.
Not to mention what could be an expensive cylinder.
Nice job.

Nice job.

I did the job so save a friends profit margin.  I think I'll get the porting done on it tonight/tomorrow.  It should be a good runner... I doubt he'll sell it after I get done with it.

I have a 2100 cylinder to do the same thing on when I get time.  Next time I'll switch to a smaller torch (not the giant 300 amp 18) so I can get my first past a little cleaner.  I had to reach down into the cylinder with a long collet cup and blend in the camber side basically by braille as I could not see anything.
