I very seldom go out to a client to look at their welding requirements.
My approach to work is
"nothing is a problem"
Suzuki Aluminium Engine Casing Welding Repair
A Suzuki motorcycle agent in Leitchworth asked me to take a look at doing an aluminium engine casing welding repair for them. The chain had come off and smashed the engine casing.
Casing had been repaired before.
Hence the brown epoxy shown in the picture attempting to trying and stop the oil leak by the previous owner.
I had to remove all traces of the epoxy before welding.
To the right → shows welding over the old weld to get rid of all impurities and pitted cavities as-well-as working the oil out of the cavities too.
The weld is not very neat because I had to repair over an old contaminated weld
Left, showing the TIG aluminium welding machine I use to do the aluminium welding repairs with.
This is one of the most difficult aluminium welding repairs I've done
Repairing the old weld meant a lot more welding had to be done, causing considerable heat input, which meant, the casing contracted slightly. Causing a bow on the sump gasket surface.
To fix that, I had to weld/build up, onto the gasket surface to take up the gap caused by the shrinkage from the heat of the weld.
I then had to carefully file down the weld to get a perfectly flat and true surface for the sump to seal onto.
Fantastic phone call a week later
I was very please to get a phone call from this client, AM-Suzuki.co.uk agent in Letchworth, saying how happy they were after extensive testing running the engine on numerous runs to find no oil leaks.
I suggested they use 2 gaskets to seal the sump, but they only used one.
Very pleased with the results
Yamaha R1 Aluminium Engine Casing Welding Repair
Imaged to the left showing the damage to the aluminium engine casing.
Threads broken out and the aluminium cracked casing.
Welded aluminium casing plus threads welded closed.
Casing filed down and holes drilled out in possition, ready for the new M6 thread inserts to be installed.
This is a close up shot showing the M6 thread inserts installed.
Thread Insert/Repair Information
These thread repair inserts are amazing. The threads end up stronger than before after the repair.
They are super thin inserts, so you don't end up loosing strength after drilling out the casing before installation.
Another successful aluminium welding repair
Another happy customer
This is a repair to a clutch bracket on a motor cycle
I can't remeber the type of motor cycle. The bike was dropped and the replacement part was over £600. This repair came to £110 plus postage.
Successful repair, once again
Triumph motor cycle
aluminium engine casing welding repair
This was a starter motor casing brackage
The customer made all the componenets. All I did was pitch up and do all the welding for him.
The aluminium welding turned out perfect
I cannot guarantee a successful weld. Every type of aluminium product is different, which means different results.
I cannot be held liable in the event of there being damage caused to your item through the welding repair process.
I can also not be held liable in the unfortunate event of a breakage occurring to your item causing damage or harm to anyone or anything else due to structural or weld failure.
Aluminium welding temperature reaches 660oC, so all paint work will be destroyed around the welded area in the process. There may also be damage caused to seals or other components due to the excessive heat from the weld.

This was a vertical up aluminium weld, or vertical down aluminium weld. This welding technique works just as well in either direction.

I have worked closely with Durkan Construction site managers on various construction sites in and around London solving a wide range of problems. Because of my extensive engineering background over the years I apply my experience in the construction industry to solve various problems.
All forms of metal work, welding and engineering undertaken
Our company is based in Cambridge but the majority of our work is undertaken in and around London.
All our welding equipment items are dual voltage 110 - 240v to comply with construction site health and safety regulations and standards.
This is one of our light weight, dual voltage, latest inverter technology TIG welding machines to weld thin steel, aluminium and stainless steel as-well-as TIG brazing.
Using the correct machine for each welding application
We carry 3 different types of dual voltage welding machines with us at all times, including a portable welder/generator in the event of not having electricity on site.
- MIG welding machine
- TIG welding machine
- Stick/ARC/MMA welding machine
Oxy acetylene cutting
The reason for having a variety of machines available is to achieve the best results. Each welding application is different and requires a different approach/welding machine and technique to solve the problem.
