Re: Brand new engine has hole in cylinder near stud. :(
Thanks again for the input. eDJ I was going to take the advise of filling the hole with JB weld or as Macaddict suggested, some "fast steel", but I was concerned that it would stick to the stud when it hardened and then if I ever did have to take the jug off it would be "stuck" due the repair... I havent run the engine yet so, what is your feeling on that... If I did the repair, would you suggest taking the jug off to do it?.
P.S. I did get my missing parts from the vendor by priority mail 2 days later. So I would say he's shown a willingness to make sure a customer is taken care of.
