08 Raptor 250 JB weld Stator cover and metal shavings question
So I took the cover off for the gear that engages with the starter gear and the case inside was scuffed/gouged up and there was some metal shavings it appears that they never put the dowel/spacer rod back in so the gear was rocking which probably is why the starter is hanging up.
The cover was also cracked ( Hair line Been having a oil leak issue ) where that gear rides right below the started nose. I cleaned everything up and scuffed up the cover inside and out where the crack is and JB Welded it. I am now waiting for dowels, gaskets and some other odds and ends and I will put it all back together.
I am a bit nervous about having JB weld inside the case even though I just put a thin layer to kinda just stop the leak and put in on much thicker on the outside.
I also hope not to much metal is inside the engine.
Do you guys think JB weld will be ok in this situation? I am guessing when the starter is engaged there maybe be some pressure on the case.
