Broadmoor seat pan cracking

Recommended Posts

MarksA-C
On my 717, and my 610 there are cracks near the bolts that hold down the seat pan. There isn't alot of surface area contact where the Seatpan and the transmission meet. Is there a way I can strengthen up the contact are so no cracking happens? This is the old seatpan from the 707 (replaced with a better one).


This is one Idea I thought of...

Mark, I think your idea would work fine. But, since you have a welder, you might want to give it a try? Just a suggestion. :) I know of guys that have welded a plate behind where the crack is, and on the crack itself. Then they grind it down flat and it's as good as new. But if you want to do an overkill, you could put that plate underneath as you suggested and weld it in place. Drill through the plate where the original hole was and weld the crack itself, grind it flat, paint it. You should be good to go. Personally, I'm a perfectionist. I'd rather throw or sell the whole thing and get a good condition one and put it on. That's just me, though. :)
