Cast welding old engine heads and blocks

by Ken Hughes

My only experience is HR steel arc weld. I guess I could still run a bead. only 7018 and 6013 applications. I am interested in knowing if the old school blocks and heads that are being thrown out could be salvaged? I have a refacing ability already, so we don't need to go there. Just can cast be welded to be of years of service in a engine?


ITs a problem,

full of problems, some weld good, some give bad dreams.

not a cut and dry answer, but you may want to stay away from it.
