Good point Bill, it looks like a very porous weld too. If a welded repair is done again, I would use a sheet of glass and grinding paste to make sure the mating surface is true. Ally brazing rods will fill in all those holes and with a bit of work and a buffing mop, it could look like new.

NB: When I say 'All those holes' I was referring to the porous marks, not the blo*%ly great big one where the primary chain escaped!  *smile*

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the
glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big
as it needs to be.
