I checked the part and the Plast-aid seems to have made a strong bond. I will be able to tell better how well it works as I get farther along with the repair. I think I may try to reinforce with some wire mesh.

I buy the 3M structural Adhesive at my local CARQUEST and NAPA stores its about $25.00 for the kit but will last me a year or so.

Here's pictures of some of my plastic repair. I put plastic over some wire mesh(I think it may be fiber glass) to help strengthen it. It is now much thicker where the bolt goes through.

      New stuff suck's, I like my old stuff when it breaks you need a flat head screw driver, ball pien hammer and a 1/2" wrench.  10 minutes and you are on your way again.  Good luck with that carb.

 

There's a big difference between new stuff and cheap stuff.  Some new stuff is amazing, and has major improvments from the old stuff.  The carb issue looks like a blessing in disguise...stick the jets back in and you're probably all set.  Beats the heck out of battling one of the old updraft Briggs carbs that they used on the 'good old stuff'.  The emulsion tube in those is almost always siezed or leaking or both, and to buy a carb body will cost you more than a parts tractor or two.

 

That said, I still like a blend of the old and new.  Helps me appreciate both.  The new-ish stuff I have came as a result of lucky purchases, and when I got on them, I couldn't get back off!  The work you can get done on some of the newer equipment is impressive.

 

 

...but I won't waste time on the cheap stuff. :thumbs:

Finished and returned. Hopefully the repairs made to the plastic will hold.
