ASTM A-514 is a quenched and tempered high strength steel with a yield 
point of about 110 ksi. It comes in various grades, and is weldable but 
only by someone who knows his stuff. Really, _really_ knows his stuff. 
You would do very well not to try patching this yourself. If you start 
welding just any old thing in there you're likely to end up with a bigger 
mess than you have now.
