I just want to know, the hole I have to fix is about the size of the head of a 11/64'' mesh. Will it work great with epoxy on a such big hole or?

Well the only thing I want is to make it work without leak at least for the summer to give me some time to buy another one that will fit my ATCS ( I have to mod the rad to fit it in ).

If you use epoxy, make sure it's not the 5-minute set stuff, which isn't technically rated for constant exposure to water. Use the stuff that takes a long time to dry.

My father told me he have 6-8 hours one in the tool chest so I will probably use this one since 8 hours is long and probably enough for long water exposure.

Just double-check the packaging. The warning is usually "Not for submersion" or "Not for sustained exposure to water", or something like that, if it's an issue.

I'll promise you I will look at it and ask my father to be sure it's the right thing;)
