Hello guys I'm wanting to fill some imperfections on my lister junior cylinder where the rust has eaten into it over years of laying in the dirt. Is there a filler that anyone can reccomend for this purpose and will withstand the heat of the engine when it get to when full running temp

Adam ,although I have not used it, many claims have been made regarding JB Weld .Personaly I have used a product made by Peerless Plastics ,not in the cylinder bore but to repair cracked water jackets.

JB Weld two part epoxy.
About 50 years ago. I used JB weld to repair a Natural Gas Fired, steam boiler.
It was the only heating supply for our house. I used a hacksaw blade to reach the area that was leaking & it took several coats. That repair lasted as long as I lived in the house & don't know if it ever failed.
I was about 15 yrs old at the time, no father, no money, mother had nothing but a bible & a prayer.
I had the stupidity to fix it any way possible & used JB Weld first. just because the can said heat resistant.
One thing about JB is you can use water to make it as smooth as a babies ass.

The problem with most all the muffler patching material is they are water soluable and if any moisture gets to them it will break down the material. I'm not familiar with that particular one but all I have ever tried looked ok till it got wet too often.

The old napa used to carry a tube of stuff called Liquid Steel. It was a 1 part stuff. I had a chain get jammed against a hydro cylinder 1 day at work and didn't want to be out of the equipment waiting for the lazy shop mechanics to order a cylinder for the post puller. I bought a tube of this stuff. Cleaned the metal,and put some along the groove. The next morning I used sandpaper ,a very fine grit, and polished it all back up. You could barely see where the groove was and it worked fine with no leaks. I later used it to fill a thin groove in a Kohler engine block that had a broke ring cut a thin vertical scar in the cylinder. It weren't much but enough to catch and release oil to smoke.

I buy and use a product similar to the JB weld from Bunnings Hardware. It is called NEED-IT by Selleys. It comes in small and large tubes and is a good price, under $20.00 for the large tube.

That is interesting as it is on the outside or should say underside of car and gets wet every time it rains and up here in tropical Queensland that can be lot of water during our wet season and for me has been OK

I've got engines that had terrible pitting and as long as it is just pitting and not large portions rusted away, I just honed them and run them and they go OK.

Or do tou mean the outside of the cylinder or the hopper?

Hi guys no it's on the outside of the cylinder I would just like to make it a bit smoother so that the decals will stick nicely on it.

Hi
I have used automotive filler (bog) on a tank cooled engine that I have run for 5 years now with no problem but it does run very cool don’t know how it would go on an engine that runs a bit hotter. I have also used JB weld to fix a small crack in a water jacket that was going to be very hard to get welded up think it was about $20 for it and it’s very easy to use.

I do have some bog in the shed and was actually wondering if that would work. Will give it a try.
Thanks Adam

I am not too sure of the temperature range of U-Need It. But I do remember that there was a couple to choose from as well as quantity. Have a read of the label to see if it suits or google the product or visit Selleys web site for more info.
