I recently discovered that the original eagle hitch latches and jaws on the SC and DC are cast steel, not cast iron. This is significant because it means that they can be built up by welding rather than brazing.
I established that they are in fact cast steel by using a spark test, a flame (melting) test, and by peeling up a curl with a cold chisel. I then built up a damaged set of jaws using 3/32" 7018 H4R (stick welding) and had very good results.
It took me about 4 hours per latch to weld and grind them back to shape. Also, I was able to replace the broken tang at the top of one jaw with a piece of bar stock.

Today's Featured Article - Uncle Cecil's Super A Lives Again - by Mike Purcell. A week or so out of most of my childhood summers was often spent with my Uncle Cecil and Aunt Sissie in the small East Texas town of Maydelle on their 80 acre farm. Some of my fondest memories of these visits are those of learning to drive a tractor at the helm of Uncle Cecilís 1948 Farmall Super A. Uncle Cecil was the second owner of this wonderful little tractor, but it was almost as though he had adopted an infant. The original owner was a man from Minnesota who bought her from a local dea ... [Read Article]
