Dennis, do you have a copy of AWS 1.1?
Also, why not check the AWS website, and see if they might have a specific standard that deals with the testing of existing welds in place.

What is the standard I should follow to evaluate the welded connections that support the 50-kip counterweights? What percentage of welds should be checked? Should they be X-rayed, magnafluxed.....?
