    I'm watching and realising you hadn't thought to earth the plug and I was surprised when it fired up but could see it arcing to one of the head bolt washers.

    Neat although it looks like it wouldn't have lasted much longer. I had a hole in a oil pan once on a old dodge dart I bought for $200 back in high school. I took the pan off, and put some JB weld on it, and pressed some screen door mesh into it, and aluminum foil over that. Never leaked a drop, and sold it like that 2 years later.

    I want to see a cylinder head made of stone or concrete.

    I laughed through the entire video! God! IT WAS GREAT!!!!! Thank you for your time, patience & ingenuity!I never bitch about the price of JB Weld.....& I have used LOTS of it over the years. I personally thought the head would split & bits & pieces would fly. Simply AMAZING demonstration! Great stuff as usual.

    You should have run it to the point of failure, so we could see how long it would last. Maybe it would have lasted indefinitely, but we don't know for sure because you deprived us of that info.

    Make a block out of jb weld and use both the head and the block.

    I used JBweld for my barbell ends that keep the weights from sliding inward and it didn't work well.

    How much jb-weld do you think I'll need to make a set of Yates C3 heads? 🤔

    30 bucks of jb weld and 2- 3 hours of time for a 10 dollar head... hmmm

    Why don't you build the entire machine out of JB weld

    Hmm. Will Sea Foam remove JB Weld from an engine?

    I don't know why you just didn't let it run until it's failed

    Do you still have that head?You should have all the parts you need now, so why not try to make some cooling groves on that head, add the JB weld piston and as the next step, create the cylinder, also with cooling grooves and measure how these hold up compared to the original ones.See if it can hold up for at least one cycle of cutting the grass on your lawn, a few more if it proves to be reliable.It is maybe stupid, but if it doesn't explode or show any kind of wear and cracks, it just proves that even JB weld can be used for fabrication.Up for the challenge? ^_^

    Run it till it fails. After a few hundred hours, you can consider it a permanent solution.

    Use a tap guide to get your holes started straight! They work great and they make them for drill bits too to get holes drilled straight

    J.b. Weld is one of the finest, most durable products in the history of southern engineering and all related subjects.

    put a steel retaining plate under the bolt heads, keep the original head on the shelf on display, and runit. bet that lasts plenty long

    You can try an epoxy by Epotek. We use it for semiconductor, optics and space applications. They have to be cured in an oven which probably allows them to withstand very high temperatures as well. You could try Epotek EE149-6 for instance. https://www.epotek.com/site/component/products/products.html

    Do this again but use steel wool in the JB weld it’s like rebar in concrete.

    I wonder if you can cast an entire engine, cylinder piston, conrod and all out of JB weld.

    Outstanding test! However JB weld is not conductive. I see an ark to the washer right next to the spark plug. You'd get a better test with a ground wire to spark plug.

  • rootbeer666

    You can see the spark plug arcing to the nearby bolt because it's not grounded properly. When using non-conductive heads you gotta wrap a ground wire around the spark plug.

    That was a pretty cool video, well worth a subscription... I wanted to see a tear down just to see what it looked like. Or if I could last an hour... At least 15 minutes. Catastrophic failure is worth a couple views
