Just reading some posts this morning.I don't believe brazing is the only way to weld cast iron, although it is one effective way .Someone mentioned you can't weld a exhaust manifold?Year's back I welded up a manifold that was cracked in two pcs , a vintage 4 banger Hercules if I recall.Prepped the areas,Clamped it down on a flat piece of metal stock,Put it in on a open barbecue grill , got it nice and hot.I used a mig welder , argon, ,,, I believe 44-30 alloy wire.Then put it back on the grill , let the charcoal cool off,The next day I cleaned up mounting face, and reinstalled, worked great for all the years I had it,I'm a oldie, ,, but I kept going back to school throughout all my professional career, ,,kept jumping jobs, ,, a master in nothing. LolWeld it anyway that works, ,, heat & alloy, combinationsJohnI cleaned up theSent from Samsung tablet
- I agree. Looks like a nice job that was done.From: a8050266 <mail4sam@...>
