    When tig welding the pick up to the pump body,on a BBC oil pump, is there a need to remove the spring and punger from the perssure valve, or can i just remove the cap from the body?

    I honestly don't even know if this is the right kind of welding, but bottom line is we have a lower housing unit on a B-Max drive, aluminum that needs some welding. Anyone? Preferably in Arizona? Thanks

    Anybody know a good welder who can weld a oil pickup onto a cast oil pump for me. I've called about 10 places so far and nothing. I guess the task of welding a steel pickup onto a cast pump is a tricky one. Anybody recommend a good welder in the south OC area?

    Both of my stainless steel gas tanks have cracks coming off the welded filler pipes where they are attached to the top of the tanks. I have fixed both with jb weld but the leaks come back later. Who in Sacramento Ca area can weld on these tanks ? Thanks for any info on this.
