Weld seepage

Post  Tore on March 8th 2014, 10:55 pm

I had a fitting tig welded into tranny pan for a sending unit. One spot on the weld is seeping a little. I really don't care to pull the pan off as its sealed pretty good. Can I drain the fluid and put some type of sealer on the weld till I need to pull the pan. What can I use for the sealer??

jb weld works good for things like that but don't get the 1hr stuff I haven't had good results with it.clean up the area with sand paper leaving a rough textured area for adhesion and clean with brake or carb cleaner.

You can use a aircraft fuel tank sealant. It is a 2 part sealant that dries very slow, about 12 hours. PM me if you want the info on where to order it..

I put JB weld on it today and will see how that works.
If the JB and the gum don't work I will get with you.

The JB is gonna do the trick. Larry's right...the JB quick stuff is crap...the slow stuff is bulletproof.

The JB Quick I used years ago was as brittle as bondo. I gave up on the stuff after 1 try. They musta made a better formula since then Suspect ...maybe I'll give it another shot.
