Default More on the Head

My friend spent about 1 1/2 hrs welding my cracked head. Here's a short pictoral that shows the repair job. This is my first attempt to load from the Gallery.
The head with the cracked Secondary Cam Chain Tensioner bolt hole.

My friend John Vaina adding some aluminum

Filling in the crack entirely

Filled In and ready for filing

Here it is after we filed it down to clear the valve cover

After we tapped it

Here it is installed.

I'll post more later when I get the timing set up and explain it a bit more.
