Default Re: Best way to fix this header

It would be best to bolt the header onto a block if you have one handy. Next if I was doing the repair I would make a steel patch that would over lap the original welded area. The overlap would be much stronger as long as the tubing is not deteriorated internally. The weld would be Tig a much better way of completing the repair.
