So I am probably better to wait for tomorrow and go to my Canadian tire to buy some epoxi that is water certified ( probably in the boat alley ). Maybe I will get some paint at the same time to do a little job on the rad. That could be a good idea.

What again??? sorry I'm lost now???

I could braze it for sure that's not the problem. The place where is the hole is the problem. Here a paint edited picture of it. And seriously Gomer, I haev been here for a pretty long time so I know the name of trustable people like Gingerbee but I never heard about you before??? I am not saying that you are not a good guy but if they say it's ok then it is probably true.

Well, if the epoxy is being used to seal a hole in a rad with water constantly running through it, then part of it is going to be submerged, don't you think?

sorry martin metal his statement made no sense to me. and what i meant is that if you can go out to your garage adn braze it with copper then go nuts but the epoxy is not going to affect it's cooling at all hence why this makes no sense to me "braze it or it will die". just get some good epoxy like a jb weld there are many out there that will work i like it cause it's so over kill for it's strength.

edit ( you do have to watch if your going to be getting into subzero chillers running denatured alcohol then worry but your not, jb weld can brake up when using stuff of this sorts) sorry about the side-note i am getting into chilers.

if you really want to be sure there one for underwater J-B Weld Company - Products Overview

novice repair: jb weld clean hole an mix and apply wait to cure.......but not perminate IMHO

experinced repair: solder a blob solder, clean hole apply flux preheat hole then tin with solder then blob (note if use torch excessive heat! will have more then 1 hole) let cool on own then pressure test max 4 lbs best repair with 80watt iron

experienced repair would be my favorite but actually I don't have anything that is not TO HOT for this kind of metal. I have a DC torch ( will cut the rad in 2 ), a propane torch ( way to hot the fin will melt ) and a standard electric solder ( can't get him where the hole is because it's under the screw hole ) so epoxy is probably my only option.

That's my point - quick-set epoxy usually has those warnings, the longer-setting stuff doesn't. So best to use the latter.

Anyone that would use fast fix epoxy on water would be kind of an idiot XD or not a pretty good handyman:P but well...you guys know like me that there is idiot people everywhere. last week or so I had a computer at work using old Dominator memory with the long ( but not removable ) heat spreader. To fit under his CM GeminII he cut the ram heatsink with cutter. It was so ghetto mod XD but the ram was defective and corsair deny the RMA...to bad:)
