Is there a special technique you use to stop the pool wanting to obey gravity?

Muz,

This is a split in a diesel fuel tank on the pajero. it looks like where the baffle is welded to the skin its tearing the skin. the right weld is where the leak is. It's not growing any more and i will be welding it tomorrow. I was going to weld along the split and T it at each end of the split, then weld some 3mm plate over the area of both welds and plug the extra plate every 4"(just a 5mm hole).

What do you think?

i would say that the rims ar heat treated alloy the rims and rings will need pre heating and post heating
gas needs to be pure argon
if you have a tig use this to tackkk the rings in to position as this will eliminate any coldstarts then use alloy wire in mig the ttig would take to long

Welded My Knuckles today as per the tips posted here. Job was quicker and easier than I thought it would be. Turned out really well. The weld area is alot harder than the original metal, so time will tell if it will wear evenly or not, but I think it will be ok.
