JB Weld. Make sure the surface (inside and outside) and the crack is clean and dry. Mix up some JB Weld and press it into the crack from both the inside and the outside. Be sure to spread a layer of JB Weld across the crack. You do not want the JB Weld to be just in the crack.
Let the JB Weld cure according to the package before reassembling and running water through it. I would give it a whole day if possible.
If the crack is just on the tank itself, you can find just the tank online for around $50.
You don't need an striker with a MIG welder just hook the ground cable to the base metal point the nozzle where you want to weld and pull the trigger and it will weld. Household current will run a MIG welder Take a look at the plug on the welder if it will pug into a 110v outlet you are all set, but most likely you will need a 220v outlet and maybe as much as an electric dryer type outlet.
It takes a lot of practice to be a decent welder you also need to know what voltage and wire speed settings to use for a given thickness and type of material.
You don't mention shielding gas, if you are using a flux core wire you don't need it, but if you are using regular wire you do.
If I may make a suggestion, If you really want to learn how to weld, find a community college near you and take an introductory welding class. You will get a wealth of information and practice on different welding processes. The instructor will work with you and get you welding much better and faster than you will on your own. Most importantly you will get a lot of safety information.
This is a good introductory book: http://www.amazon.com/Welders-Handbook-RevisedHP1513-Cutting-Oxyacetylene/dp/1557885133/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1
Wow you have a lot of variables here. Let's go over some of them.1.AC current 2.100%argon shield gas 3.Check your Tungsten, it must be the recommended 1or 2% and the right size, clean and the tip rounded by meting 4. High freq. turned to continous-not just "START"
5. CLEAN,CLEAN,CLEAN your Alum. with a S.S. brush that has touched NOTHING else in in it's life!
Start here and GOOD luck
yes the cast can be welded(brazed). if you are able to weld this yourself, just remember before you can weld it, you have to heat it till it is cherry red then you can weld the piece. if your not qualified to weld it you can usually find a portable welding company to do this for you. hope this helps you please rate the solution...thanks
