Linkert Flange Repair

#1

Any suggestions on mounting flange thread repair? It seems like any insert will leave very little meat around the insert. How about Brazing the hole shut and re-threading. Will a torch be too hot. Tig? Thanks All!

I have repaired one using a Tig and silicon bronze rod around 5 years ago, many miles and still good.

Indianut!

If the hole has been egged off-center, filling it with brass is the easiest to work with.
But for simple pulled threads, a common Helicoil insert works just fine, even for the short top hole on 1 1/4" models.

Please make certain that the flange is flat, however, as many lose their threads due to warpage.
