ive got some pictures of the nightmare that i have gotten my self in to. i have come to realize that im not doing this for money. im doing this for the learning experience. what was i thinking.
im going to end up in the loony bin after this.
it looked a lot better before i started taking it apart. amazing how much rust hides. till ya hit with a hammer.
well im going to need a new complete base there isn't anything to weld to. "haven't figured how to weld rust yet." i broke the pot getting it apart. i herd it crack from the hot wrench. this why i will never put anything together with out anti seize. your nuts if you don't use it.
i will grind it out and weld it up unless some one here says other wise. ive welded cast before in high heat environments and didn't have problems. how much does a base run for the 350. need to figure cost of welding one up, or just buy a new one.
here is the link to the pictures.http://s1071.photobucket.com/albums/u501/windagoman/
