J.B. Weld, Cold Weld, Epoxy... Show what you've done!

Let's see some pictures and stories of what you've done with J.B weld or anything like it (j.b. qwik, etc. any kind of cold-set epoxy).

I once used it to hold the steering wheel of a law mower onto the shaft when the splines were stripped.

I also used it on a 79 Honda cx500 to keep the intake manifold sealed when I snapped off a bolt.

I used JB Weld to seal an XJ sending unit that was leaking where the wires come out of it. Took the sending unit out,wire brushed the area, wiped off with Brake Kleen and sealed up both sides with a healthy dolup of 4 hour fast dry. This sending unit is submersed in gasoline when the tank is full. 2 years now and no leak at all.

Plumbers Goop works too however you need 24hrs to dry. Also try the Oatley putty from home depot the kind you knead in your hand that only takes an hour to become hard as steel.

Not jeep related but my dad smashed the oil pan on our minivan during a camping trip and we used that quick steel stuff to plug the hole until we got home

Used it to repair a hole in an engine case on my atv.

Kawaski Lakota popped the chain and took out part of the casing where a bolt secured it.
Cleaned the hole well and used a piece of metal to cover the hole, the hole waS about 1/2'' by 1'' maybe. Used jb on the outside and inside to hold in place. has been working for 3 years now.

JB Weld will always be in the emergency kit. Used it to plug the radiator drain plug when I broke it off wheeling once, more recently used it to plug the holes in the body where the tailgate hinge bolts were, let it dry, sand flush, paint, and presto, incredibly cheap bodywork that nobody in the world can tell was ever done!

I like that idea. Wonder why we don't use cold weld instead of bondo.

Years ago, a spark plug popped out on my 71 VW bug. Took some of the 2 part putty stuff, smeared it around the threads of the plug and shoved it back in. Waited around for a half hour and drove it 15 miles back when it popped out again just as I was parking. Probably would've lasted longer if I had been able to let it fully cure.

No pictures but fixed the exhaust headers on my last boat. Previous owner didn't winterize and they froze and cracked. He brazed the cracks and painted, I didn't notice until I was on the lake a few times and found they were leaking. Ground out the braze, heated them up with a torch and filled. With heat, JB runs like water so it will fill the cracks/pinholes instead of just going on top. And it hardens like normal once it cools down. Painted and leak free afterwards. I've done the same with a radiator that took a rock hard enough to punch a hole in it.

So you can put jb in a radiator and it will not stick to nothing but the leak then harden when it's cold and won't hurt nothing or what ? Thanks
