08 Raptor 250 JB weld Stator cover and metal shavings question

So I took the cover off for the gear that engages with the starter gear and the case inside was scuffed/gouged up and there was some metal shavings it appears that they never put the dowel/spacer rod back in so the gear was rocking which probably is why the starter is hanging up.

The cover was also cracked ( Hair line Been having a oil leak issue ) where that gear rides right below the started nose. I cleaned everything up and scuffed up the cover inside and out where the crack is and JB Welded it. I am now waiting for dowels, gaskets and some other odds and ends and I will put it all back together.

I am a bit nervous about having JB weld inside the case even though I just put a thin layer to kinda just stop the leak and put in on much thicker on the outside.

I also hope not to much metal is inside the engine.

Do you guys think JB weld will be ok in this situation? I am guessing when the starter is engaged there maybe be some pressure on the case.

    Ive seen guys use jb weld to fix oil pans and engine blocks. Im willing to bet youll have good luck with it. As long as you got a good rough and clean spot for the jb weld to adhere to,im willing to bet itll be ok.

    I scuffed it up with a sanding disc and a stone on a dremel, I guess we will see.
     
    Is Permatex Ultra copper  RTV ok to use on a new factory gasket?
     
    Or would Hondabond 4 or Yamabond 4 be better?

    Hondabond or yamabond. It doesn't break apart as easy as other sealants. When it dries its like a rubber band. So no worries of any little pieces that get squeezed out breaking off inside the case. I atv shops have a heart attack when they see the other sealants used.

    Permatex is a big no no on any engine imo. And this is why especially on these smaller ones. And this was only about 3/4 of it there was more before i pulled some off and even more before i peeled it off the case covers.


    95 Honda 300 Fourtrax-big red rear, 2 inch snorkel, 6 inch lift, 8 inch stretch, 3 inch body lift, 32 silverbacks, locker, M4 motorcycle exhaust, 424, 54% reduction, EPI Economy, 
     
     
    380, 450 clutch, 350D clutch cover all waiting to be installed.
     
    88 honda 300 frame- 350d motor with a 69% reduction, small lift and 31 wides, dual 2.5'' glasspacks, 3.75'' body lift, locker, 450 foreman clutch still dont run
     
    98 honda 300 4x4- all stock for now might get 450 gears and a 317 someday.

    So you guys suggest Yamabond 4 or Hondabond HT instead of permatex.

    Its all back together and it seems to be leak free and the JB Wled seems to be holding so we will see. I used just a little bit of the Permatex Copper spray.
