hi guys... i tried one of those alum weld kits, from peavy mart... lots of my buddies say it doesn't work... well, it does...


the key to it, is makeing sure its clean, and definatly gettin the parts hot enough... if you do, the rods flow like solder... just like it says.... but a propane torch won't do it.... I used a map gas/oxy torch... and get it hot.... even the vice i was holding the part in was hot....

sorry for the poor quality of the pics... and i don't have a before pic..


there was a large slag hole on the side of the engine case, and a hairline crack on the bottom..

OK this really bites... says unlimited file space, but when i try to load the pics... tells me they r too big.... guess to to artic chat and look at pics under both general, and vintage cats..

Anytime you weld or braze aluminum, cleanliness is of utmost importance. Use a stainless wire brush (not steel) and brush the crap out of it.

And one that's not used for anything else, you don't want to contaminate the aluminum ,Tig is the way to go
