I was out enjoying the sunny day here in Maine and was changing the chute crank handle on my 1995 8/26. The leading edge of the old one had some chunks missing and the sharp edge was catching my gloves.

While checking the machine over I noticed that the top of both sides of the transmission housing front flange (where it bolts to the auger and impeller assembly) is cracking. not serious yet, but a number of videos I've seen indicate what is going to happen. I was wondering if anyone has welded these cracks an/or added a backing plate to reinforce this area?

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I've watched some disassembly videos because I cannot remember if there is any room on the inside to weld a doubler plate without interfering with the auger pulleys. Any thoughts?
