    Would jb weld be safe to use on my down pipe? Can it take that much heat?

    Thanks

    ive used it on my radiator and it stayed on for like 2 months before it came off by itself..but i think it came off because of the hot fluid trying to leak out. guess it should work ok on a downpipe, but i would just get a propane torch and some solder for $20 and weld it.

    solder melts at about 350F to 700F. What you'd need to do is braze the joint or weld.
