A good pair of rails is what you could start with to build up a nice truck. Good luck on the entertainment.

The flange where the carrier sits on the housing is welded into the housing...I guess it's steel so the threads are strong enough, but the housing is cast iron. The factory didn't get a good weld in one spot so it was leaking gear lube through the missed weld.

In theory the housing could be cast steel. So steel is welded to steel. But I doubt on it.

On the other hand welding of cast iron seems the least a questional solution.

A good welder with the right rods should have no problem with it.

I had a 38 housing that cracked in that same area, on the left hand side. Apparently it can be done but I ended up find a new housing cause labour rates here are very high.
