The 700R4 that was rebuilt for my rod had a cracked bellhousing bolt hole lug. I used a bare block to bolt it to then took it to a friend of mine who tig welded it. After he was through I smoothed it up with a flap disc. After painting you can't even tell it.

Thanks for the reply the guy i have taken it to said if i can find out what the ali case is made of he can then use the correct welding rod

he said the (ams)number of the casting material ,then he could use the proper welding rod for the job

Did the guy that done yours just use a genral alloy welding rod?

Yep general aluminum welding rod, he wasn't concerned with what the aluminum alloy was. The crack in my case wasn't that big, only about two inches around the bolt hole.
