Specializing in ALL TYPES OF WELDING / ALLOY / CAST IRON / BRONZE / ARC / MIG / TIG / OXY-ACET /STELLITING.
Here at Adelaide Welding Co. we specialize in alloy welding as most late model cars have ALLOY HEADS - MANIFOLDS – BLOCKS –AIR CON PIPES – INTERCOOLERS – FITTINGS which may need welding due to CORROSION – CRACKING – MODIFYING – GENERAL WEAR & TEAR. All the cylinder heads are pressure tested to 100psi before & after welding repairs are performed so we GUARANTEE ALL OUR REPAIRS.
Because cylinder heads are subjected to heat, coolants, oils & because manufacturers cast the heads out of all different types of alloy they can be difficult to weld but over the years we have specialized our techniques so we can guarantee our repairs but we can't guarantee against further cracking, warping or failure due the engine being overheated or being subjected to forces greater than they have been manufactured for.
Maintenance & servicing your vehicle will always help to avoid engine failure & sometimes the cylinder head failure is a result of another problem not the cause & repairing the head will not fix the problem. Older style cylinder heads, some diesel heads, exhaust manifolds & castings are made from CAST IRON
& we have a SPRAY CAST IRON WELDING TORCH
that mixes cast iron particles with a flame which form a very strong bond when repairing cracks, defects & damage to these types of castings. We also have other methods of repairing cracks where we METAL STITCH
them using a series of tapered plugs interlocked together.
All cast iron heads are MAGNETICALLY CRACK TESTED
& PRESSURE TESTED
before & after they have been repaired so our repairs are guaranteed. So if you think you have a problem with your cylinder head we can pressure test or crack test it & advise you if your head has any leaks or defects that can be repaired & give you a quote to repair them. We do some fabrication jobs & do all types of general welding repairs.
So for GREAT RATES
