I was having an issue with Dim headlights and the stereo would shut off every time I would turn on the headlamps.
If I accelerated the lights went dim but as soon as I let up the lights would go bright again...
So I took a look at the belt and noticed that it was 1/3 torn off. Hmmm Weird Right? So I decided to change the belt cause I figured that was the issue.

Pulled the wheel off and saw this.


So now, tomorrow I will try to weld this with the TIG.

It would be easier and probably stronger if you just bought a replacement either from a junk yard or in the mall. My 4 Speed Muncie Slave bracket snapped in half, and I tried welding that cast aluminum and it sucks. Its poor quality aluminum, and you need to use a different filler rod and make sure you quench after (contrary to steel). Those are the instructions my instructor gave me, and it works, but damn its ugly, and I don't know if I really trust it.

I was thinking that Rodney sells a replacement bracket. Might wanna look into that.

Much better off getting a replacement. I'm surprised that job held at all from the look of it. I have a spare bracket I could ship you, but with the shipping cost it would probably be cheaper to find one in a yard. I'm assuming that's a 2.8L?

+1

I have not used Rodneys reinforcement bracket, but his other products that I have had are fantastic. And he stands behind what he sells to.

What's that piece of wire that's holding the broken piece onto the main part of the bracket? Looks like it might have been broken for some time.

Mechanics wire. Yes I think it was broken for a long while.
