Mike, the welded seam has shrunk and pulled as it cooled causing the oilcan above. You need to hammer the seam with a dolly on method to stretch the seam area out and release the pressure causing the oilcan. If this doesn't work it'll probably need to be cut loose and rewelded. If you shrink the oil can tight the warpage might be less severe but I bet it will still be there or possible spread out over a larger area. Bob
