Welding On The Bay Doors

3 posts in this topic

I need to repair a hinge.

What are the precautions for arc welding on metal that is attached to the frame?

Check with your chassis maker, but most recommend disconnecting the batteries, two gang plugs on the Allison ECM and PC boards such as refrigerator, furnace and water heater.

What Brett said plus:

What is the alloy of your chassis?

What is the alloy of the hinge?

As far as the process I would use a TIG machine. You can control the heat and heat effected area.

Also remove every thing from the compartment and have a fire extinguisher ready.

And last but not least, use a professional welder.
