I'm in the process of converting a bush hog from category II to category I. I was going to weld in cat II to cat I bushings in the top link hole of the A-frame. To me, the conversion bushings I bought at Tractor Supply look to be maybe bronze since they have that golden appearance clear through the wall when I cut one in half. It doesn't appear to be a chromate or similar surface finish. Does anyone know the composition of these bushings? Can I weld them with 6011 or would they have to be brazed? Thanks for your help.

Thanks guys. Had to run to the hardware to get a magnet. They are definitely ferrous based. Just wasn't sure based on appearances at first. Got them welded in with 7018 and all appears well.

I have a top link with cat 1 eye on one end, cat II on the other. Now my tractor is cat II, but you could reverse the proceedure and use a cat II pin, without all the hassle of welding in shims.

Burn the plating off them without breathing the fumes, sandblast or wirebrush 'em to clean 'em up and weld 'em in place!

They are just mild steel, not high priced alloys.

Where's your magnet? If they are magnetic. They are steel,probably 1018 Cold Rolled with a anodized or cadimium finish to prevent rusting. 6011 is Ok but not my choice,too brittle, will probably crack out. 7018 is a better choice.

When you put a magnet to them, do they stick?
