Default Re: Cracks weldable on Pre war frame ?

to properly fix a crack first you need to stop the crack from growing. Just welding/brazing over the top will not be enough. You have to drill out the end of the cracks and V out the crack so you can get a new weld all the way through the metal. If its a brazed frame it must be brazed or you will weaken all the other brazing at that joint.

Learn to do it right or how to fix it later, quicker to do it right the first time.
