Bad idea to try and weld my valve cover because of a crack? JB Weld is not working out. Is that valve cover aluminum or magnesium?
Also - I have some big cracks on my 1G exhaust Manifold. Should I get it welded?

Get a 2G exh. mani. They can be had for as little as $75 or so from a junk yard. Might try the DSMTrader for the valve cover. I think it is aluminum by the way.

unless you have a TIG, forget welding the valve cover. JB weld sucks compared to other epoxies out there. I dont know if you have one available, BUT I really like the NAPA expoxies.

As far as the exh mani, you can stick weld that sucker, and grind the weld down. This is only a temp fix, however. You should look into getting the 2G steel mani.
