Stripped shocker feedneck.

Hey, I'm looking to buy a shocker body but the feedneck hole is stripped. I was thinking about welding the feedneck on, but would that be pointless?

Whats your opinion guys?

If you can get it welded. It is much stronger. Just use a TIG or a MIG will work, but you need the proper wire.

Heat always Makes JB weld come off. Welding however would be permanent.

Make sure there is no anodizing where you plan to weld it.

Its a Clayish epoxy used for general repairs. You can get it at walmart in the automotive section or at a hardware store.

So its a worthy repair? I mean is it crap that will not hold a feedneck on with a full hopper of paint with out snapping off?

Sorry for all the questions.

If he gets it re-tapped, no feednecks are going to fit.

I'd say go with JB weld, and yes, that **** will hold anything in place.

standard jb weld will be fine, i used jb weld to patch a 6" by 6" hole in my canoe and she is still sea worthy so i think it will hold your feedneck just fine, just be VERY careful and make sure there isnt any excess jB in the breech

Would it be possible to maybe mill out the feedneck hole with a dremel and in its place put an old spyder feedneck in the spot that I milled. Then tap two holes for the screws to keep the feedneck on the gun? If noone knows what I'm talking about go to actionvillage and look at their spyder feednecks.

Did you clean the two surfaces very well? As long as it has a clean rough surface to bond to it is a great bonding material. Was your application for a feed neck repair also?

yes, i smoothed it down then scruffed it up with a bit of sandpaper and it popped out after a dive with a fully loaded pulse. It was for a feedneck

I'd say jbweld it. But you could probably modify it to use a spyder feed neck, then modify the spyder feedneck to use an ego feedneck for an ultra low rise ^^
