    Broken Riva Ride plate mount tab

    Anyone ever break their intake grate mount tab off on the 215 riva plate? I had an intake grate disintegrate and take out my new ride plate.
    It was a clean break too. Can I weld a piece back on or is it toast?

    Weld a bar right across like the 255 plate and re drill your new grate. Wont break again.

    Nice!
    I'm borrowing a buddy's X riva plate & already drilled out my Worx grate and trimmed the shoe so the rest should be easy.
    Thanks

    OK, who can do this weld job the right way for me so I won't have to worry about alignment issues?
