    Greetings:

    I am currently working on the 86TR fuel system.
    Found this, as well:

    Since only one image per post is allowed, I'll post again.
    The image quality isn't that great since it was taken with a web cam, but it will have to do until my negatives are developed.

    This car is driven easy, never tracked..

    Well that's not good, you're going to need a new one. I wouldn't weld it because the think is probably all fatigued.

    PS-You can post the other pics as replys on the thread, you don't need to start another thread.

    Gabriel,

    E-mail me and I will send you drawings and instructions for repairing that crack. Rest assured my "fix" is not dangerous. My job is designing race cars so I have a little expertise in this area.

    It does look to be repairable. Just make sure that the repairs are done by a Qualified welder using top of the line TIG welding equipment.

    I think crazy glue, and a little duct tape will hold that together. As a matter of fact, leave it broken. Then it's like a thriller ride. You can sit there clutching the wheel, sweating, waiting for it to totally fail, and wondering what will hapen to you when it does! It'll be like a Hitchcock movie!
