Cylinder head made from grey cast iron, is one of critical engine part which work on high temperature and pressure. The condition which occurs continuously during engine operation causes wear which identified as a fretting failure. Therefore repairing process is needed by using Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. By considering the working condition and the materials, welding parameters are used 140A current, 100% Argon, DCEP and preheat at 250°C. The welding process is done on specimen sample of cylinder head which fretting failure by using Ni-CI, NiFe, NiFe-1 dan 308L filler variation for each specimen and done by PWHT at temperature 650°C which holding time 90 minutes. Visual test, macroscopic test, microscopic test and hardness test already done in this research. The results are there is no defect such as crack, porosity, undercut, and lack of fusion on the visual and macroscopic test. On …
