    when i was tightening down the drain plug on my tranny i put a slight crack in it. it's nothing too serious. it's kinda leaking but not gushing out. would it be safe to jb weld it???

    when welding cast aluminum you often have problems with crap in the metal and it blows up when you weld on it thats probaly why it turned in to a large hole
