Skywagon70 the box that I was talking about on the spring leaves holds them together. The broken leaf is right at this box. Do you have to replace all four of the leaves that are held dogether by this box? The tractor that I am working on is a cable lift. If I weld the bottom broken leaf to the next one up do you think this will keep me from being able to replace the bottom broken leaf in the future? I can probably weld the bottom side of the crake but I did not know if this would help much. Welding the two leaves together on both sides for 6 inches would not be very difficult. How many weld passes do you recommend to weld the leaves together on each side?
