Welding repair to primary chain case

Postby GeoffR » Mon Apr 09, 2018 5:34 pm

Whilst removing my primary chain case yesterday I realised that an area of damage had been poorly repaired and was leaking a little bit of oil. The casing looks like it has taken a bump at some time (probably the foot peg or brake pedal got smashed into it during an accident). I think someone has used a 'liquid metal' type of product on it and done a poor job.

So my question is, can these be repaired be welding? If so, does anyone have a trustworthy and proven person they can recommend?

Thanks
Geoff

Looking at your previous posts it seems you have a 1960 G12.

Thank you for the contact details. I may contact him but I have a couple of local options that I'm going to speak to first - they're actually poeple that my wife deals with via her work....perhaps I should listen to her more often :)
