yup the one in your pic looks identical to the one I pulled from my parts machine but different from the one on my GT19, but that one has power steering, so that valve has more outlet ports on it.

It wasn't ground down much after it was welded.  Tig welding is much easier to control your puddle, heat and flow so he only put weld where it needed. Seems to be holding up very well.

Nice!  That does look like a good weld/repair. 

 

From now on...Don't pull on the lever so hard.  Let the hydraulics do the lifting!  :D

I've done Mig, stick, oxy-acetylene, and even a little submerged arc. I have attempted Tig twice, and couldn't seem to keep the tungsten out of the puddle either time. Once was while I was working industrial maintenance and the company had a rep come out from Lincoln electric to give the whole shop a demo and gave each of us 2 -1/4" chunks of aluminum about the size of a deck of cards to try and lap weld together. At the time there were only 2 guys in the shop that could Tig weld and they were hoping to get all of us to be familiar with at least the basics.
Now my son took a Tig class while he was in school and does the Lions share of anything Tig at his job.

I'm in the same boat DT.  I've done Mig, stick, & Oxy-Acetylene as well.  I've never done Tig.  It seems I get good at welding about the time I'm finishing up a project.  I'll be laying down a bead that looks like a machine did it.  Then...I don't weld for 6 months to a year.  My welding skills start from scratch on the next project.  Repeat.

Holding up well so far! Had to refill the oil for what I lost but overall I am happy with it again.
