Cracked Leslie RS power chamber

Postby Rat » Tue Apr 02, 2019 4:31 pm

While removing the backcaps of my rs chambers, someone tightened the bolts so tight the cast aluminum cracked when breaking the bolts loose. Could this be fixed with j.b weld or any type of cold weld epoxy?

I assume that the actual power chamber itself was cracked, and not the back cap?

I have two RS chambers in excellent condition that I'd be willing to let go for $80 a piece, let me know if you're interested.
