So my Honda BF90 lost a piece and I am wondering how to fix this? My outboard jet unit's bolt threads apparently did not extend all the way into the mid-section and it looks like I over tightened them at some point last season and I just now noticed while cleaning the thread passageways. There was PB blaster showing the crack and then out it came in my hand.
It is 1/3 to 1/2 of the thread bearing surface. So on this casting separates the exhaust and omitting the piece would really increase the noise of the motor.
Is this the kinds of stuff JB Weld is for? I also tried to rebolt the piece on but the threads don't match up so I may drill out the piece and just reinstall as if it were a spacer or washer.
