  • A job weld done

    This is a picture of the kickback where the rear roller retainer on the balldoor side needed to be welded on. The original retainer broke off near the bottom and the rear roller worked its way down and ate up part of the kickback.

    This pic is of the the pit motor mount bracket off of 6 that cracked and needed to be welded. I forgot how heavy those pit motors can be [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] lol

    Thanks for looking guys

      Re: A job weld done

      We had 2 rear roller retaining cups go in the past few months and dig into the kickback shearing the rear roller shaft. We don't weld em back on tho. We grind and chisel the old retainer off, drill the 4 holes, grind it smooth and bolt it in nice and tight. Real pain when they go, but we've done quite a few. So the majority are done, and if one of those go again, 4 nuts and bolts and poof, done [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]
      All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I also bolt the new ones on, except I dont grind the entire retainer off. I just grind the bad part off, cut the new retainer to size and bolt it on.

        Wang, I got to hand it to you, those are beautiful welds.

          We do grind it all off, and just find the holes before we do so, drill thru the 4 of em, then grind, chisel and beat the old off. Grind it smooth and install the new one. And yes indeed NICE welds [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

              It kinda looks like you have the new bracket welded more turned clockwise than it should be But if it works........that is all that counts [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                All MIG welds will look that good, not to knock it, but that's the beauty of TIG or MIG, the sweet lay of the weld. Run 7018 for awhile and BAMM, it looks that good too! 6013 if you aren't worried about penetration (he said penetration [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] ).
                I think I like the 4 holes and bolt it on idea better though?
                It's been awhile but I have much more to share!!!

                  I've always cut the bearing mounts off and bolted yhe new one on.

                  I learned one trick while in San Diego though. The head mechanic I worked for liked to rotate the new mount towards the front roller about half the distance between the holes.

                  When the mount breaks out it's usually only on the bottom end. So rotating the mount allows it to spread the pressure exerted by the RR bearing over a larger area.
