Default Ooooops I did it again!

Once again fellow juggies I oversized my exhaust port to the point of exposure (popped a hole in it) and was wondering what to use to repair it?Is there a high temp putty or something i could use to patch her and still hold up to exhaust temps? The engine is a 230 Pum. Any and all help is greatly appreciated....

you can use JB weld on it. Use the regular stuff not the fast cure. otherwise its off to the TIG welder.

THe only thing I was worried about was that the damage was done in the exhaust port and with the high temps capable there, would JB hold up? I think I found some metal repair made by Permatex that actually gets harder with heat and holds up to 2000 deg F. I'll keep you guys posted..

Safe cracker,
Go to http:// www.davesmotors.com and buy yourself a new head, you'll be surprised how cheap it is, Daves is a moped dealer, they sell Superior engines that are exact duplicates of the Zenoahs'. All the parts interchange. If you use the piston from one to the other remember to get the wrist pin & clips for that piston.

Bill, the engine is a PUM (Performance Unlimited Marine) meaning it has a water jacket. Dave sells aircooled stuff, very cool guy though. I have dealt with him several times. Thanks for the replies guys. I guess I have a Putty motor now, LOL..

Ya I know who they are. I am a member on Jim's but they keep denying me the right to reply to posts for some odd reason. Thanks for the reply! I can't wait to get this huge tunnel transformed into an inboard, should be wild!
