    I appreciate the feedback. I did die penetrant 2 times just to be sure and it is not cracked. Now whether it’s always been that way and I didn’t notice, or something put a crack in just the outside I’m not sure. If it was indeed cracked then it sounds like buying the case half would have been...

    You can use crack detecting die and developer if you want, but it’s just another thing you’ll have to clean off.

    You can use soapy water if you want, but you really need some sort of solvent. Cast metals are porous and you need to dissolve the nasties if you can, then deal with the...

    Welding cast aluminum
    by Nikolai
    I found a crack on the front differential housing of my Polaris RZR. It’s slightly depressed like a rock got wedged between it and the frame and pressure cracked it. It is NOT cracked all the way thru, holds fluid just fine, no idea how long it’s been that way. I pull it apart every year for inspection....

    Which welder to buy
    by mx842
    My shop burned to the ground alone with just about everything I owned. I had a Millermatic 252, a Dynasty 300 DX and a Lincon AC/DC buzz box. I will get another 252 and maybe even upgrade to a 350P. The Dynasty.....well I don't know. I loved that machine but I don't really need that much of a machine...

    I figured I'd consult the hive mind on this one since I've been beating my head against the wall without much progress.

    Customer sent in a 330A/BP(S), Sr#: JB505198. He said it had been sitting unused in his shop for a couple years and the HF never worked right since he got it. When I...

    New to welding - Airco CV-250 - Airco AHF-T Feeder
    by JimFritzMI
    I am new to this forum and reasonably new to welding. I have done a handful of repairs by brazing with Oxyacetylene, and another handful with an old Lincoln stick welder. Well I have always wanted to learn and be able to MIG weld. I am always working around the fact that I can't weld by bolting my creations...
