Re: Welding rear pinion yoke ?!?
Ive done that same repair a couple of times on a D35. They have always held untill I was able to replace them. I ran one on a Sunday up Claw Hammer, and Sledge Hammer, then replaced it on Monday and threw it into the emergency parts box.
I did not weld the caps though to the yoke. I just battery welded a ridge, and then grinded it out, like the original tab(more or less), so I was able to still remove the Joint, later.
Wow, you can get a nice tan on your arms, from welding with no shirt on.
