Hey Guys,

I am almost done designing my spare tire carrier and think i am going to use one of the rear hubs from a spare model 20 i have to mount the tire onto the rack. I am wondering if anyone knows what kind of metal this is and can it be welded? Is it cast??

Thanks

I think it is cast steel and not cast iron .You should be able to weld it to mild steel pretty easy. I would use a 7018 rod with DC current or a mig welder.
