I have a D14 and the nose cone is cracked off. Has anyone had any experience with welding theirs? I have heard of guys doing this. Thanks Joel

I sure haven't tried this. If it is cracked, I am assuming that it is cast iron. If it is cast iron and you want to try it, I have had some success welding cast iron in this way. First, I put the pieces back together and clamp it securely so that it looks unbroken. The I use a grinder to grind the cracks that there is about an 1/8" groove with the crack in the middle. I would do this on front and back if you can get to it. The get a bottle of MAPP gas at the hardware store and heat the part up (may want to have the nose by itself for this - no electrical parts). Heat it as hot as you can get it - may take 5 minutes. Your clamps can't include a large vise as this will pull the heat away from the part and result in a weak weld. Small C-clamps are best. If you can lay it on a couple of knife edges, this will reduce heat loss. When it is hot, start filling the groove with flux core welding wire from a MIG welder. If the part gets cool, heat it again. The clamping must be secure during the welding. When you are finished, grind the surface smooth so it can go back in the bell housing and then reassemble. You haven't much to loose - the nose is scrap right now.

My D14 has been running for three years with a welded nose cone. I just beveled the edges Tacked it together, heated with a torch just enough to burn the oil off it and welded it up with 308 stainless rod.
Good Luck Ed
