Cast Iron Welding Examples
These studies are based on recent jobs passing through our shop. As you will see from the photographs, some have already been tampered with by inexperienced hands
resulting in a failed repair and ultimately costing more to fully resolve.
Austin Tractor 1919
Here are parts of a 1919 Austin tractor.
The tractor was delivered new to a farm in Co. Antrim and has never left the farm. The current owner's father bought the farm in 1948 and has never seen it running. An attempt was made to repair frost damage to the cylinder block and the head at some time in the past. The repairs were unsuccessful. We had to remove all the foreign metal from the attempted repairs before we could flow in new cast iron for a good repair. The reason for the large gaps in the cylinder head was that there was a large amount of foreign weld metal applied. There are more welding jobs on this engine and all the bearings have to be white metalled and line bored.
