Yesterday I realized that my transmission had a crack in it. Luckily it was in a small and easily removed plate that covers the gears. I removed this and degreased the whole thing. I welded it up with the TIG. It was a bit trickier than the practice piece that I created to replicate the crack and get good at fixing it before I dove in. This is because the transmission is cast aluminum. My weld does hold water, so it will do its job, but it doesn’t look amazing and the aluminum sagged on the inside so I had to grind it down a bit because it was hitting the shifting rod.
