Default Re: JB Wield

JB Weld isn't nearly as strong as cast aluminum (see attached typical properties of AL vs JB Weld). However, might work in some applications as a filler in a confined space, but not with heavy or repeated loading; i.e., vibration. In any case, I agree with removing broken stud(s) and replacing.
