I searched the forums a bit to see if anyone has had much luck repairing rather than replacing the crankcase cover. (Why drop $100 bucks on a new one and wait for it to get shipped here if I can fix the old one). -But didn't see a lot regarding repairing the cover (Although sounds like plenty of folks have also punched a hole in their cover.)
The hole is about 3/4 inch long and not wider than 1/4 of an inch.
Has anyone had luck welding these up using a welder? Or has anyone had success with JB Weld on filling a gap that size? -I've also heard rumors of a "tape" that you can put over small holes in metal with low pressure.
