I just got a used cooler on the way now I figure it would the right choice to be able to 100% sled this weekend and I'll have mine welded as a spare

My buddy JB welded his and its lasted a thousand miles, The thing with someone TIGing it they would spend 10 times longer preaping and cleaning it then welding it.

I had removed my front exchanger and got it welded. The shop that fixed mine has now done them while on the machine and I have buddies that have also used JB weld with good results. I know I would try anything to avoid removing it again as it was a pain in the azz.

If i were to do it I would try 3m panel bond, grind down the surounding fins and jam on a patch

Epoxy these days have come a long way

Its not rocket science its a seal on a 1/8" hole at best

Cleaning and welding of aluminum on a heat exchanger can be time consuming

Blow back is always a problem with the impurities in the welded area if you don't

Pre heating the aluminum will help eliminate the moisture prior to welding or epoxy repair

Let the area cool to room temperature before doing your epoxy repair

Pressure test after repairs is a given
