OK already, I think we get the idea. I gave out poor advice, I will never recommend anybody weld their slip clutch again.
I still stand by my fix, only in that specific application. In my situation the grain conveyor had no problems, it was a problem of inability to tighten the slip clutch spring. Also the grain conveyor is not an area where people can get hurt, or where you would usually get big rocks, etc that would cause major damage; along with the shear bolt I have no doubts about my situation being OK. It is also not completely original to me, I know of a person who has run a 105 exclusively for years in North Dakota, who did this over 10 years ago.
It is obviously not something you would do with a feeder house, that wouldn't be something I would even consider; but I guess that is something that somebody else might. So with that happy harvesting and lock up the welder.
