Also Peening the weld as soon as you stop each weld with a chipping hammer will relieve the stress in the weld, helping it to not crack out on you. The slower you cool it down the better it will hold up.

Nope.You need a stick{arc} welder and cast iron rods If memory serves me,the cast MUST be heated to around 500 degrees.I would recommend a welding shop.

Sounds pretty tricky and with a flywheel the results of a failure could be spectacular not to mention dangerous. With the screen I would just try the JBweld. If that failed then you would just have the screen flapping. If a welded flywheel decides to crack in half then that would be disastrous.

a few years ago I bought a older soap stone(hearthstone)wood stove .these stove have a cast iron interior. some of the plates were cracked and are quite exspensive. So i decided to weld what I could . I did the heat with thing with oxy/acc , let it cool down slowly with the torch.
well this will be heating season four on those plates. I'm no pro welder by any means but I like to try to fix things when I can
welding was hard to get it to look nice but its holding up. IMO I'd try it . but use a stick welder
