Faked a lake last night and noticed a drip coming from starboard side engine soft plug......

PITA job to replace due to bracket........

Anyone have any luck with a little JB weld?????

I have an 05 197tt with the LQ9 and the soft plugs on the exhaust risers were leaking. :mad: The boat is out of warranty and they want huge money for new risers. I used JB weld on this and it does a great job. I do not like having to use JB weld on a boat that is just 4 years old but also did not want to spend $1100 for a new riser.

Try this stuff!

I'm not sure how this would work without a radiator and a closed cooling system to pour it into.

JB is awsome, I used it to fix a small crack in the cylinder head of my Harley.

Just understand after you JB weld something it can not be welded. To weld, all material that touched JB weld will have to be removed for it to weld correctly.

The shop who told me, actually refuses to touch anything that has been JB welded. Too much trouble or part wasn't worth the extra labor costs or something, I forget.
