I wanted to update this so readers with the same issue know what NOT to do vs what to do. So as you can see above, I ended up using JB Weld High Temp Epoxy. The only issue with this was it didn't make a perfect seal around the fitting ( part number 5XC-15373-00-00 , Pipe, Breather ) . I was getting a slow leak, so I had to bust out the chisel and knock all the JB weld off.....that was a pain in the ass! Anyways, I tried some different non-hardening sealers...but those didn't provide enough shear/tensile strength. After hours and days of research, I found what I was looking for though!!! Loctite
680's intended use is for worn out press fittings..do some research to make sure this is def what you want. A little about 680... Fix cure time 10 minutes and full cure time 24 hour at the temperature of 77 degrees fahrenheit. 0.15 maximum gap fill. Mild odor/scent. Brake fluid, motor oil, unleaded gasoline resistance. 4000 psi shear strength. 1250.0 cP viscosity. Make sure you have it in place where you want it....its not coming out once cured haha. Notice that it says 0.15mm maximum gap fill....I wouldn't say that's 100% accurate, if you go to loctites TDS ( Technical Data Sheet ) it says different. Good info though, read into it http://tds.loctite.c...docs/680-EN.pdf
Point of my rant is, I followed the directions and read the TDS for Loctite 680 and it worked wonders. The press fitting shows no signs of leaks after several hard rides, to include racing the Clovis Kicker Arenacross. I wouldn't use anything else and I wish I would have done more research on day one.
I know you may be thinking that maybe I work for Loctite and I'm pressing the product....but I assure you I do not. I only want to help those that may fall victim to this pain in the ass incident. If you have question please let me know as I will try my best to answer them. Stay safe and ride on!
