Magneto plastic cover

Postby feg7846 » Fri Nov 13, 2020 6:15 pm

While adjusting my timing today and prying against the plastic cover it broke(stupid of me I know). I can glue it back together and seal it. Would that be ok, or do I need to get another cover. If so, where can I find the best price on one. Thank you

Years back I patched a hole in a magneto cap with epoxy. Patch is still holding. Magneto works.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Gonna try and patch it. Probably with JB Weld and Epoxy. Thanks for the tips

Don't use JB Weld. It is (reportedly) metal filled, thus not as good an insulator as some other epoxies. I don't have a specific suggestion of a brand to use.

Thanks my friend, never thought about that. Very good point. I will find something else to use.

Seems that everyone offers an epoxy, these days, one brand I particularly like is P.C. One I don't especially like is Gorrila brand, it sets up kind of gummy. The little tubes from Harbor are even pretty good. Just avoid any of them that supposedly contain any sort of metal. Probably, whatever brand you local supplier offers, will be fine.
