Evidently this is another weak spot! Fixed mine by reaming out w/dremel and applying JB Weld - hope it holds. Don't know that it affects anything except leaking water. Dusty B

Probably a freeze crack. Not that it matters now of course. I have one cracked in the same place. Repaired mine with JB weld also. I'll replace it if I decide to restore it. Glad to see you've started on it Val! Sounds like a good time for a mini fest :-)

I can't tell by the pic how bad the crack is, but I bet it can be brazed up and ground down to look nearly as good as new. If it's behind the grill....nobody would notice. But...somebody may have a good one out there. 8)

While you have the radiator off, check if where the radiator attaches is bowed by putting a straight edge across it. That is a common problem if it has frozen. If it is bowed, the radiator is probably also bowed to match, and if you change the casting you may need to use some rtv compound in addition to the gasket to get a good seal. If the looks of the weld do not bother you too much, just smooth it and leave it as is, it will not hurt anything. I have seen them where they have been so badly distorted from freezing that the hand crank would not go in, but they were still functional other than not being able to get the crank in.

I gather that the weld is not leaking coolant. As long as there is no other major problems with the bolster, I would leave the welded area alone and use the bolster. Could pretty up the welded area with Bondo or epoxy, smooth up and paint.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Don't let that bolster stop you Val :big afro: I can bring this to Boss's. I think it is a '52 if the date code matters. I can check if needed. I have also shipped them before. ($35-$40 USPS I think)

I bough a beautiful bolster from Dale at a fair priced and even shipped to me. By the way Dale, I used the inflated inner tube you used for packing on my 154!

Glad you could use it. When shipping something that heavy, you have to make sure the box is full, and that is what I had handy :mrgreen:

That reminds me of a package I got several years back. I bought a generator and a radiator shroud. He put them both in the same box with no packing material. I don't know what the shroud looked like when it went in the box, but you can imagine what it looked like when it came out.

I learned my lesson. I shipped an angle drive and pulley. They filled the box so I taped it up good and sent it. I got the box back in the return mail, and the post office never did find those 2 big, heavy red pieces of cast iron.

Very nice project Val and looking good.
I'm going to have to check into this, not sure but I think there's a law against owning a 79 and a high crop cub also. :mrgreen:
