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!

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.
