It's hard to say how to weld without a pic. Weld it and grind it and plate it. You will be better off than just a weld. Where to weld the plate depends on what you are working with. If you can plate out past the box and in to the main frame then probly weld all the way around. If you can just cover the weld try to weld the opposite direction of the crack if you can get 3 or 4 inches of weld on each side of the crack. Also you can drill or torch holes in the plate and plug weld it. that will help. Welding parallel to the crack may give you another place to crack.

OK that is the answer I was looking for is to weld opposite of the crack,not parallel,it is on the side of the header just mild steel that the wobble box bolts to,also found a housing that has a little slack at the bearing that I will fix for the vibration that caused the crack,Thanks for the help

If this is just the mild steel frame of the machine, don't worry about it. Bevel it out and weld parallel to the crack with a 7018. No question about it. Run a couple more passes to add a good crown over it and leave it. I wouldn't plate it.
