  • Is this weld normal and safe?

    I picked up a new trany jack today and putting it together I notice the block that sits on the piston is spaced away from the plate it's welded to. Is this normal and safe? (strong enough) a 1000 lb trany will be sitting on the plate.

    It looks as though it is just tacked and not welded. Can you give us a pic of the whole structure, so we can see where force is applied? If force is applied on the plate into the pic, or, out of the pic, it would likely fail immediately, but it is hard to see...

      Does NOT look like something that would raise the comfort level of the quality of the product....At least for me...

        I'm with Northweldor. I can't tell what the part is doing.

          Whatever it is, it's sketchy as ****. Run away !!!

            What kind of transmission is this for, an 18 speed roadranger only weighs a bit over 700 pounds. Need to see it in relation to the rest of the unit for perspective, or a link to it, but at those weights it should be welded all the way around.
