Wondering if anyone out there does this kind of welding? I have small crack in foot of

outboard motor. I am not losing oil from inside foot so don't think that crack is complete thru

I thiink it is composed of aluminum. If you know of anyone that is experienced in this, I would

appreciate it you would reply.

Thanks,

Bp

Depends on where it is. A picture would help. Tim (Breeze Fabricators) would be my suggestion if it can even be done.

Most of the time the crack is caused by the carrier bearing retainer nut in the very aft side of the housing. It is caused by a mineral deposit that builds up thru electrolysis. The machined nut is a little different alloy than the housing. You can weld it up and slow the cracks return. It is normally behind the large o-ring seal at the front of the carrier bearing assy. That is why you get no leak from the lower unit fluid. It should be pressure checked to 20 lbs. after the repair. Call us if we can help. Tim @ 554 6172/ 934 8609:usaflag

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">I?ve used the Prop Shop for prop repairs and they were great. Choppedliver is a good welder. Usually posting in the flounder gigging section.
