The square hole in my Allis CA seat rotted out. This is how I repaired it this morning.
Clamped it on a couple of bolts that I put in the drain holes and plunged a 1-1/2" end mill thru the old hole location.

I had welded up some cracks in the back side before doing the hole.

Made a thick washer in the lathe with 5/8" hole and then milled it square.

Less than 5 mins with a file and the corners where squared out.

All ready for welding.

If my old eyes could see better the welds would look pretty but its a working not show tractor.

Hit it with a little rattle can touch up paint.

After it bakes in the 95 degree sun for a while today I should be ready to get back to mowing.

That's the best thrill a hobby machinist can have---use his machines and fixit skills to overcome needed repairs without having to put out any cash.. good job Dave :))

Nice! I'm rebuilding a Allis G with my father right now and think it needs this repair. He is 82 and still going to farm auctions looking for projects.

I think yours will last longer than the replacement option anyway. Nice work.
