I've got a 1956 740 row crop. I have about twenty inches of crack on the right side of the transmission that does not extend into the clutch housing. A result of a giant ice cube that was once in there. I recognize that the transmission housing is a structural component of the tractor but the cracks are small and more plate can be welded over the housing. Would this be the wrong way to go? I welcome all opinions. I hate to leave my model and serial number in some junk yard since nearly all of the tractor is original. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

I'd weld it, were it mine. Unless you are experienced with cast, take it somewhere that does it. It won't be cheap. I just got a box of cast iron rods, my cost was $2.00 a piece; stainless is even more but would be the "best" to weld cast. Then it will have to be preheated for a while. Won't be cheap but it will be right.

Welded or not, it's strong enough. You just want it to stop leaking. JB weld could be a possibility. Or, a good cast welder can fix it and grind off the bead so you'd hardly know it'd been repaired.

Rick, I would take it to a pro welder, and have him take a look at it! Don't know why it couldn't be "V" out and a bead or two run in it. With a little grind off, re-paint, look like new, luck to you.......

A friendly suggestion.If you are thinking of having that crack welded better consider drilling a hole at the end of the crack.Reason;-most likely the heat of welding will very likely drive or extend the crack so you will be chasing it or extending the damage.Ask T-Bone or some other pro.
