Hey Mike: Do you have the ability to weld aluminum? I've got crack in the battery box on my Husky I need to take care of. I'd like to avoid having to take the subframe off the bike if possible.

Doc referred me to Morris in the past. They do great work and the price is reasonable.

Yup. Got the subframe on the 950 welded there. They are about the only game left in town for small jobs when it comes to aluminum. I'd have no problem going there again but I am trying to avoid removing the subframe and all the crap attached to it.

I took my bike over there with the plastics off of it and the wiring harness pushed aside so it could be welded. They wrapped a really wet towel on the frame near the harness so the heat wouldn't transmit. If you do that make sure you disconnect the battery or nasty things can happen. Did that once back in the 80's. CDI's aren't cheap

Probably. But the reason it broke in the first place is because the weight of the battery bouncing around on it. If the other side breaks the battery will be resting comfortably on the tire.

Might do that. Or I might just stop being lazy and take the damn thing off. Probably talking 20 minutes of work.

I take it from your lack of commenting on the matter that the stud puller didn't work?

it grabs it better than anything else has thus far.

but it also interferes with the valve springs in that area.

Im going to try and remove the head, and I am pretty sure that the stud puller will remove the shank from the block, but from the noises it made when I torqued it yesterday it will simply break it right now.

ive got my engine hoist back ( yesterday) and ive got the exhaust manifold removed, working on removing the intake manifold now ( 2 more bolts nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get to with american hands)

I plan to use the engine hoise to force the head up off of the remaining shank of the broken bolt.

we shall see what happens.

Matt, if you need some help when you do that let me know. I am more than willing to come over and let you throw beer cans at me.

Hey thanks Charlie!

If I can get some stuff done tonight to be ready to pull it tomorrow I will call in sick to work and let you know!
