I have a Chevy Van with a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated diesel in it that
recently broke its starter mounting pad.
Naturally, I need to fix it or scrap the vehicle (no way for this tenacious
dog). The mounting pad is part of the engine which is cast iron.
I have heard horror stories about arc welding cast iron so, I went to the
welding store and bought a pound of very high nickel welding rod (ouch) and
ran three beads on a Briggs and Stratton flywheel and they were beautiful.
Was it luck or is this normal for high nickel?
Should I Lock-N-Stitch it and then weld it or, or, or?
Here is a Photobucket link of a photo of the mount:
I am laying upside down and will have to weld in this position.
I cannot afford to screw this up.
Thanks for any and all help.
