Default Re: Cracks weldable on Pre war frame ?

Okay I am going to prep the area.I will grind it out.I guess I will continue a 1/4 inch beyond the the end of the crack.I'm just going to get the grinder out and place the blade in side the crack which should clean it up just fine.Then I can V out the top of the crack.Idebayank if I weld this area that is not brazed it is just a crack(s) in the frame it will weaken all of the of the brazing on the rest of the frame???? Is this correct
