    Re: Welding a atv rear axle to its ring gear

    How loose is the gear on the axle, if it's sloppy loose then it may cause more damage if it's not centered on the axle, if it shoulders up against something on the shaft, then I would seat it against the shoulder and add some pressure from a press or something similar and the give it a couple of smallish tacks 1/4" or very slightly more, 180* apart to keep things straight, otherwise it may mess with the tooth contact pattern.

    I built a roller deal so I can turn suspension links while I weld.

    I think I'd burn it from start to finish.

    I to get away with alot using 7018. Id probly grab a rod and burn it all the way around.
    Might even be able to make that look pretty

    Thats pretty excessive!

    I usually just weld the spiders that ride on the pin and let the axle spiders float. It all gets the job done though.

    Preheat the metal first before welding
