I have a "Y" link steering setup. It has the one tie rod end that has a tapered hole built in for another tie rod end. My problem is I need that hole to be vertical and it is horizontal. At the risk of getting chewed out here is my question: (keep in mind I AM a certified welder and will be using a TIG(GTAW)) can the tie rod end be welded? More specifically can it be cut between the hole and the end, beveled, clocked to the preferred orientation and welded back together? Is there a special rod required? I know there are tapered inserts that require being welded in so that's why I'm hoping this is possible.
