I am going to try my first Trunion Repair. I have read the FAQ and I have the suggested key stock. My question is, can simply weld the key stock to the existing structure? It will then become thicker and a bit ugly but will it work correctly? The sides will then have a different position against the springs.

If ya read it and looked at the pics, why ask if you can do it. Of course you can. (y) Or you can get this and just cut your old one off and weld this on.

The plate results in a much cleaner installation.

I silver soldered 2 pieces of keystock on one of my 882's 9 years ago and it still works fine today.

Usually it's easy enough to just weld up the corners and file them back into the correct dimensions. There is less risk of overheating the trunnion seal, too.

Can I get your advise of this. I took it apart today and have attached pics. Notice that my pins are square shaped. Also someone cut and welded on the damper plate. My gut is that they cut the top of the damper plate off to work on it instead of taking it apart. I have new springs and pins ordered and can work on the trunion (my mig welder is old and lame and my welding skills are about the same). Do you think the damper will work or should I look for a new one? Thanks
