ever welded a broken axle?

Im sure somebody has tried it, and im curious to as how long it lasted...without getting in to the whole theory of heat and what it does to the metal etc. I already know this. Also, will a 2002 sportsman 500 front cv axle fit a 2001 400? they look similar and the part number is only different by 1.

My brother in law who is a welder, welded the axle on his brute force. He got one ride out of it before it broke. Personally I would not want to rely on a welded axle when out on a trail.

yes you can weld it if you have to.the best way is to sleave it with some dom or hrew tubing but schedule 40 will work.also drill a couple of 3/8 holes in the sleave so u can plug weld it to give it more welds than just the ends of the sleaves.We used to sleeve stock stearing linkages on our jeeps and you would be suprised how much strength it gives it.It will break the joint before the welds will break

Yes an axle out of a 02 500 will fit a 01 400.
