Aluminum Transmission Oil Cooler Repair

Testimonials

Mike,

These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.

 

aluminum welding and metal repair

I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

This brand new Ford Tractor's transmission cooler needed tightening down. The customer accidentally ripped the aluminum while tightening.

 

 

Because this was a newer vehicle, they didn't make aftermarket replacement parts yet, which meant this part had to be repaired--there was no option for replacement.

 

 

Close up view of the aluminum tear to be welded.

 

 

Mike Bonventre from Circle Radiator (Cape Coral, FL) uses an oxyacetylene torch and Super Alloy 5 to make the repair. (Propane or MAPP Gas can also be used)

 

 

After sanding the repair, the part is ready to be reinstalled--and is much stronger than the original valve.

 

 

Yet another radiator shop using Super Alloy 5 to fix the impossible. Thanks Mike!

 

 

TIPS:

 

Apply 80% of the heat to the heavier fitting

 

To increase bonding strength, always add flux every time you add rod

 

Always keep your flux bottle as close as possible to the repair area, because every time you move your torch away, the aluminum drops approximately 100 degrees per second.
