    Default Help for an amateur

    Hi Guys,
    I'm an amateur welder. Only doing it for home projects. A (non welding) project I'm working on is rebuilding an old outboard engine. The drive shaft had pitting where the oil seal goes. I'm hoping to spot weld the pits then put it on a lathe to smooth it back down. Attached are some pictures. I have a couple of questions

    - is this feasible?
    - any special instructions?
    - I'm not able to tell what kind of steel it is. Could it be stainless steel?

    Thanks for any help you can provide
