Finally got the last six studs out.

Combination of a stud extractor, impact wrench, and a blow torch finally got the job done.

Some of the parts are starting to come back/in.

New spokes and nipples, all the black parts back from powder, and engine cases are mostly done with vapor blasting.

Upper and lower cases are done with vapor. On to the welding!

Man, that process is gorgeous.  I hope the weld does the trick.

Good luck, hope the welding goes well. Outside of the big crack they look brand new!

I'm curious, do you plan to leave the cases raw after the vapor blasting? They look so good as is, but that aluminum corrosion...clearcoat?
