No, as usually I could not leave stuff enough alone. I had it welded with a MIG with Argon. But dome of the areas were a little difficult and the weld was not that good looking of a weld. I have a oxygen acetylene torch at home and it was recommended to me to reflow some of the welds. Apparently I way overheated the pan vs the bung and had fracture cracks in the pan. I tried fixing those but must have been to hot again because they just got bigger and now I have gaping holes. the only way to fix it now is JB weld and I want to do this right....
