|X-Rated||is there any way to test what the metal is? The inner knuckles are steel for sure, just like on american axles Knuckles are steel, tubes are steel, diff is cast iron.|

|sj_413dude||The problem with welding mild steel to cast steel is crack forming. I think the best test would be repeatedly bending it rather than just putting one force on it. If there were any cracks they would grow and cause a failure. This would also be a better test, because driveline parts are subjected to alternating forces rather then a single force in one direction.|

416 knucle welding test
welded some metal in to knucle and placed it under the press to see how good mig welding will hold in it.
weld did hold but piece of metal just bent like butter
i tryed to snap the knucle in to half, but it just bent some before my press maxed out. its 30tons/kg
just for reference i placed 30mm (1.18") steel bar in to press and it bent like butter.
