Cracked Crankcase (oil leak).

How can I seal a cracked crankcase on a 1995 Honda Fourtrax? Is there a product out there that will not just melt away when the engine gets hot?

Re: Cracked Crankcase

I've had great results from JB Weld for this type of repair. Two main things to do, clean the area extremely good (Gas will leave a residue, so carb cleaner is better), and sand the area for the JB to get a good bond. If you have a Dremel type tool, make a small groove along the crack, so you will have a little extra material there. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.
Hippie..
