Lot's of folks always asking what kind of Case repairs can we do at BDT, here is a good example of major Case Repair from TIG welding through Powder Coat showcasing our capabilities.

nice. How long does it take to fix something like this.
It takes time, the TIG welding is about 45 minutes, the machine work takes most of the time. I would say these cases have 3-4 hours of work.

Awsome work.Im also interested in cost.My 85 cases are broken on the inside wear the crank goes.Can you fix something like this. View attachment 24281
We can fix just about any case damage, it becomes a time & cost factor. Sometimes the cost does not justify the repair verses a replacement half.

How well have repaired cases held up so far?
Since they are TIG welded and machined, they last about as good as new...really have never had any issues once repaired.

What do you do for bearings that spin in the cases? I would be interested in photos of that process.
Bore the bearing bore, press fit a sleeve and machine/re-bore to fit the bearing. All baring bores can be repaired with this method including the CB bearing bore.

Ya they where bugerd up good. Thats how they were when i got them. I have never actually broke an engine case myself believe it or not. But... my first non damaged cases are the ones you built for me last year. They looked great and had no problems all season long.
