<< My neighbor is concerned about distorting the axle housing or the

 explode using my oxy-acetylene rig. Maybe i should MIG-weld it? >>

I used an arc welder set at about 120 amps to weld on my perches.  They have 
held tight for a year, no distortion detected, and it never exploded.  I did 
remove all the internal parts for inspection, cleaning, and repair as needed 
before doing the welding though.
