|Mark Poss said: (quoted from post at 19:41:09 01/10/13) I have a duckbill F-30 that had the steering case cracked and somebody brazed but not leak proof. I have taken the case apart and gouged out the the cracks and mig welded them, looked too be clean cast. Let the welds cool down and never seen or heard a pop. I am wondering if I can put grease in the steering case instead of gear oil just incaseI have a leak or is there some kind of sealer I can use that will hold up to oil. Thanks for your time, Mark.|
I repaired an oil pan and a casting and sealed both of them with fuel tank sealer. Blasted them clean and coated them, been 4 years without a leak This post was edited by 36F30 at 19:03:48 01/10/13.
