    I picked this one up and has lots of good to it. Looks good, strong compression, piston looks good, good spark. Came with original bar that still has most of its paint and I can read the words. Aside from a clean replacing rubber and carb rebuild, there’s bad crack in the back by the AV. I’m almost think it happened sliding around in the guys pick up on the way to meet me.
    What can be done to repair this, if anything

    I believe it to be the same rear handle on the 050,051 also if you are shopping around.

    It could be cast alum but if I was a betting man id go with mag which makes it more difficult to be welded.

    It doesn't matter, I weld magnesium more than aluminum anymore.

    Wish you where closer to me. No one in my area can or does. I had a "welder" charge me 20.00 because he "tried" to weld magnesium for his time. Lets just say I do not speak highly of him.
    I still do need that 070 case half welded. Someday when i tear it done ill ship it too you.
    Is TIG the only option?

    Yes, tig welding is the only option.

    I’m sure I can supply you the whole back handle with footpad off a ts760 should bolt right on
