Hello Everyone, A sad story to report - Was riding in a remote riverbed Saturday afternoon in Grand Junction, CO when BA-BANG! A noise the likes of which I've never heard B4 and never wish to hear again. I shut her down immediately and discovered a crack and a BB sized hole in my right outer case, and a bottom end siezure. Took the engine apart tonight - discovered the gear on the clutch basket basically exploded and caused damage to the primary gear. Worse than that it broke off the nipple in the right inner case that holds the dowel for the external shift mech torsion spring. So I need information please - can that cast aluminum be welded? (it's a clean snap, good welding potential) Secondly, is there alot of tension on that torsion spring? will a weld be strong enough?? And thirdly, incase, if I do need a new case - do I have to order "Matched Cases" or can I just get the right side and make a good gasket seal? Thanks for any/all input in this time of need - And don't worry - my 426 will thump again - harder and stronger than ever!! Cheers!
