  • trailblazer 302 case cracking?

    I have a trailblazer 302 that has started to form cracks around the mounting holes in the case. They are now heading up the case.

    Has any one had this happen?

    If so was this covered in the warranty?

    Thanks!

                Well its been taking care if pretty well. Bolts tight never seen a loose one. No more than normal transportation stresses. Do you think that will be under warranty ?

                      And therein lies the problem. Your trailer floor is flexing and the welder frame is not. It would have been better bolted to skids that were bolted to the truck or with rubber spacers under the mounts to let it work without trying to flex the welder frame.---Meltedmetal

                        Thats a good point. I am planning to put it back on a truck. Need to fix the case first. Guess my next step is the local miller authorized repair facility.

                          My local miller repair facility submitted this for warranty. They said it should be covered. I will post the results as soon as i hear back.
