You really, really don't want to do this yourself. When you mess up these cases, you'll be out $10K or $15K or $20K to buy another set. Good luck with that.|
These aluminum castings are very porous, even more so than vintage Harleys. They need to have all the oil boiled out of them. They need to be preheated. They need to be welded with the proper materials and techniques.
You need to find a specialist who has experience repairing Henderson and Indian 4 cases. One such is Arno's Custom Machine & Welding in Maryland. Telephone 301-779-0438
Arno St. Denis has repaired my KJ cases and my Harley K-model cases. He does a lot of Hen/Indian4 work. He's also well known for fin repair on cylinders and heads. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Another good place is The Restoration Shop in Virginia. They specialize in casting repairs. Check them out: www.therestorationshoponline.com He did a Lock-N-Stitch repair on my Harley KH cylinder.
These folks don't work for free, but you'll save yourself a lot of money in the long run.
