    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    Brazing prob would be the best and cheapest if it's just a beater. Make sure you grind all around the crack or area real good to solid shiny metal first. You can stick weld it with cast rod but it's expensive...Bob

      fun4now , I have used 7018 rod with sucess on cast boat manifolds, just don't weld much at once, maybe 1" of bead, let cool and go again.I was always able to lay my hand within a couple of inchs with out getting burned. Paul
