Replace the case. If you crack it again you risk losing the gears and bearings from the water that will get in. Look for a used case on Scream n Fly.

Bern definately repair or replace the case. If the crack walks it will take the internals.

Bern,
If i'm not mistaken did I see your rig on trailer gettin set to be pulled out of Proroc around 3:30 friday. I believe there was a 35 Motion that looked like it was set to be pulled too. Hopefully you got the repairs you needed. If so enjoy the weekend down in AC

I am sure Bern will post later but just got back from his house and he is all welded up and ready to run in the NJPPC Atlantic City Poker Run tomorrow. He has everything covered now. Thanks to all of you that tried to lend a helping hand to a good friend of mine.

no it wasnt at Proroc this weekend, got the lower back from the welder at about 6, changed fluids in both lowers, installed and ready to rock. lets hope she holds up...looks like he did a helluva job. cleaned, drilled and glass beaded the exisitng crack both on the interior and exterior, then welded an aluminum plate along the rear between cavatation plate and carrier housing. if it holds i'm going to have him do the other one as preventative maintence...i think. Thanks to all who chimed in and if i ever catch ya at the bar I OWE YOU A DRINK !! THANKS AGAIN TO THE POWER OF OSO !!

One thing about Cats, they are real hard on lowers.

Especially if you have a center engine...

You don't need to worry about that...
