Cracked Transfer Case

While changing the clutch on my '62 CJ5 I noticed that there is a crack in the housing of my Dana 18 transfer case. My question is can I have it welded or do I need to get a new housing?

A pic of the crack would help...I am in the process of replacing because of a crack in mine...

Sometimes they can be repaired. Depends on where it is. My D20 has had the bolting ears welded back on and doing fine.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Yep. It can be fixed. But it needs to be done by someone who knows how to weld cast.
