Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Welding never usually works and this is because the crack allows the housing to expand because of the crack, welding merely fills the crack and it can still crack again. The true way to fix this problem is unfortunately to replace the entire pump housing, if you have good parts then you can swap them over, if not then purchase a complete jet pump assembly and not just the housing.
I think that is what you were asking, if not I do apologize as that is the best I gathered from your question.
Thank you!
