    Broken mounting foot on inlet plenum

    Hi all
    I have an inlet plenum from 164 V6 and the guy who previously owned the engine snapped one of the mounting feet off.
    Guy saved me by sending me a replacement and now my broken leg is mostly fixed I want to get on and repair this plenum.

    Any idea if aluminium casting can be welded and where/whom

    Thanks
    Steve

    I had my inlet plenum welded by my local welder/engineer no problem.

    Some castings weld OK, some not. Depends on what stuff there is in the base material.

    I can recommend Richard Kimberley Engineering in North Essex
    His website is down but he is still very much welding everything....
