Hey everyone I have run into quite a problem here. I have a 1972 Case 380ck (David Brown 885) where I recently replaced the water pump gasket and seal. While I was in there I decided to replace the thermostat as well. When re-installing the thermostat housing, aka Water Outlet as described on the parts diagram, the base snapped. Now it is made of cast iron and is 48 years old, so I wasn't too surprised that this occurred. Does anyone know whether or not this can be fixed? Can cast iron be welded? One might think the best route is to replace the part. I have searched high and low all the way to the UK to find this part and no one has it. Any and all help/advice is much appreciated.
