    Sorry, I just took the quick pictures, Attached are the original versions.

    I can see porosity through the paint! Yeah... not the best welds

    Agree with others who say those welds look bad.
    When you get a welder to look at it, have them inspect it for any other weld "repairs".
    Hope those were the only ones.
    Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

    Why are we having this discussion twice?
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Just a follow-up, I had it welded this past weekend, and it was pointed out to me that it is missing a 3rd link, which may have prevented the failure. The welder is going to source a 3rd link for me as well.

    I am looking to buy an ignition key, owners and services manuals (CD/DVDs would be ok) and some Ford New Holland blue spray paint. Anyone have any good 'net sources?

    I am also looking for a york rake with wheels, but local to zip code 03448 or 01095 would be best.

    Thanks!
