hole in axel tube

HI all I have just removed and cleaned up the diff out of my HJ sedan it had some bondo on the axel tube at the axel plate end when I ground it back it has been TIG welded and seams to be a tiny pin hole. Wouldnt of thought they were Tig welding in 1975, if not why would someone have rewelded it and what wuld be the easest way to fix it with out welding it again as its only in the car for a few months

Thanks

Advance the timing??

Hi,all....
A month or 2 ago I posted a question about sports heads,mild or standard cams etc. with the view of getting just a wee bit more power (on a cheap scale)from red 202,and amongst the helpful advice given,some one suggested advancing the timing to 8-10 deg. btdc,instead of normal specs of 6 deg.
I am familar with a number of technical issues,and reasonably fuzzy with others.This is one of those fuzzies.

3 Speed Gearbox Oil Filler Bolt

In the final stages of running up the 253, at the point of filling the gearbox with oil, and have discovered that the oil filler bolt is quite rounded on the head of the bolt. I dont want to attack it with the wrong sized tool.

None of my spanners or sockets go that big, so off to somewhere tomorrow to buy a large socket or wrench... Is it 1 inch or bigger ?

Vid was taken in 2001 and running in both junior class and another class im not sure on is a white eh with the rear arches cut and big modified sedan sized boots under it. I know its a long shot, but, its the only eh ive seen kitted out for speedway.
