    JB Weld it???

    Dman! What did you do, run it over by accident? :doh:

    JB works pretty darn good, but I have no idea how much torque the motor puts on that bracket (it looks like a wiper motor?). My unedumacated guess would be that it would work okay for at least a while, but might break just when you need them. Why not get it welded?

    I doubt it. I've tried to use it to fix part of a broken headlight mount. The vibration on the mount and the 'brittleness' of JB weld will likely cause it to fracture.

    Cheers, Hugh

    OK HERE GOES,
    JB WELD LICKS THE SWEAT FROM DONKEY SCROTUMS!!!!!!!
    ok I feel better now. find a machine shop and let them tig weld it for you. the jb is great for what it was designed for wich is light adhesion and as a metal filler. if you cant find a machine shop with a tig rig check with your local tech college and be good buddies with the auto instructor they have cool tools there and are sometimes quite helpful.
    again sorry but I have scraped too much jb weld off of things when going back in to weld it right to touch the stuff.
