Has anyone had experience in welding the cracked spokes of the drive sprocket. My Cletrac ADH has cracks in two spokes. Cold cast iron weld in situ? Or will it have to come off?
Stories of success welcome.

Cletrac sprockets are cast steel, they can be welded with any steel rod!  6011, 6013 7018 etc.

Thanks Robert, I did the angle grinder test and the sparks were like fireworks suggesting the sprocket was cast iron.
I can see that someone previously has welded these spokes - confusing?
Thanks for the rod info.
