Welding steel near aluminum?
Question has Expired
I have a broken exhaust stud in my engine head. I have an aluminum head but the stud is steel. The stud broke a little below the surface. I want to mig weld a washer to the stud, but will the weld stick to the aluminum or will it blow a big hole in the head? I will only be using a little 110 mig welder.
will I be okay or will that lead to more problems?
Update: Easy outs should be called no so easy outs. they tend to break and they are harded steel and are much more diffcult to drill out.
I forgot to mention that i have had a torch right on that stud, it didn't affect the head but it also didn't turn the bolt red. why is that?
