Upon inspection the factory wekd had poor tie in on the yoke. Well I fixed that

Looks good. How did you weld it? Did you weld it with the u-joint in place or did you remove it during welding?

I just wonder how you made sure you had it back square? My luck the weld would pull it off some and it would wobble like hell!

I was thinking it looked an awful lot like TIG welding myself, but I didn't want to make any assumptions. Either way it looks good.

I just hope you didn't melt the seals on the u-joint or burn the grease out if you welded with them installed.

I tig welded it. The joint didnt get hot.

The CMM showed me that I had it square.

It broke in half. The factory weld didnt tie in to the yoke at all.

I really need more practice with a TIG machine.

I don't want to step on your toes or anything, but did you make sure you got that joint in phase with the other end before you welded it on. I'd just hate to see this cause problems for you in the future.
