Looks good.. Good enough for government work.
Fixing a broken plastic wall that holds the carb insulator on a 350. It came out solid. Now no hot air from the cylinder can get into the carb area again.
Just giving you a hard time bill.
Looks like a solid repair to me..
Mould released beautifully,
First stage done, however I will add another layer on jb inside the pocket either side of the key way for strength, may even treat myself
To another piece of fiberglass either side. Don’t want to build it too much and make the Av mount too hard to fit in, but don’t want to not go strong enough and it crack from the pressure of inserting and movement / vibratipn..will add 2-3 more layers of jb and fiberglass on the outside anyway..
Not too sure about the strength, but it looks beautiful! Nice going!
Thanks mate, I haven’t used Jb before so I don’t know either! Hoping 5-6 layers of fiberglass will help with ridgity too. I would like it to work of course, and will be gutted if it fails, but you win some you lose some so we’ll see. Won’t be patching up any of the case half until I know this AV mount works well.
Toms butt plug manufacturing.
Thanks, I need a new keyboard, and another cup of coffee
I'm far from an expert on this, but i would be worried as you didn't grind back the rot to clean metal before filling it with jb weld.
I hope I'm wrong... only time will tell.
Yeah- na, I'm out.
There was no remaining bark, rust or lose pieces, paint etc. it was degreased 3-4 times, scrubbed with a wire brush, soaked for 24 hours In evaporust, dried and then went over it with Jb. I have been told that once rot has set in, it will just continue to worsen very slowly over time, but I have given it the best chance. If it fails it fails, but I won’t lose any sleep over it
I hope you degreased the piss out of it with brake cleaner or something like that, or it will never adhere for very long. DAMHIKT...
Put a magnesium supplement pill inside the crank case before you bolt the cylinder back on..
But many dirtbike cases have been repaired with jb weld. The kids in the neighborhood it’s there quick fix. I used it on gas tanks.
Might have a project saw far ya Tom?
As far as I know only needs a spark plug?
Lol only joking..
Good job on the rooted case only way to learn is give it a go see what works and what doesn't...
Just to sweeten the deal found a as new bar and chain for it!...
What ya want for it?
Well going off what any secondhand pro or homeowner Stihl chainsaw sells for here in Australia...
I'd be happy with this...
