Phifty Frustrated

Where can I get a new engine case? Ebay's only showing the whole engine. I don't need any new innards...just the shell. The brake pedal keeps punching it's way thru the side and JB Weld just ain't cutting it any longer.

I have an '06 crf 50.

I haven't been on a fiddy in a while but doesn't the brake contact the clutch cover? if so, that's a whole lot better than buying new engine cases. . . and can't the brake lever be fixed so it doesn't continue to do this? probably cheaper to keep buying brake levers than cases IMO

It is possible to weld the hole in the case. I've seen where it was done using a low temp weld material that could be done with just a propane torch.
It's not structurally strong but will seal the case better than JB weld.

Unfortunately I don't know the name of the product.

take it apart and have it welded up, stronger and thicker in the wear spot.
I know we could do it for you, prolly my guy could tig it up solid with a smidgen of time.
You gotta take it apart anyhow to install the innards in a new case,so why not tear it down and lets have a look at it for ya.

btw, jb weld, if done right and proper metal prep, will hold as well as the original metal. but if something is rubbing / wearing a hole, I would probably try draining engine oil, clean area very very good with acetone or any other light , quickly evaporating solvent, carb cleaner in a spray can, acetone on a hand rag, whatever, but clean the area clean, did I mention clean?, then take a piece of thin 1/8 or less steel plate approx 1" x 2" maybe and hammer that into shape with authority using a ball peen hammer and a bean/sand bag and form it to the shape of the case where it is being rubbed, then prep some jb weld and repair hole in case, let dry a smidgen and form with screw driver blade, then apply another layer of jb weld and use that top layer to stick to the metal piece you just made, also make sure the metal piece is also clean and free of oils, finger oils too. and blammo, easy as pie, home repair of said offending hole in case and with the thin metal plate = hole no more from an aluminum brake lever.
hope it helps
p.s. always use the original formula jb weld in the red and white tubes, not the fast hardening version in the yellow/orange and white tubes. werd to yer motha', y0

oh yeah, another thing, with the jb original, to do it right will take a day or more for the whole job, give it time to set after you kinda smooth the first layer (probably 2 hours or more), then do the second layer and metal adhesion, apply the metal plate and use something firm to hold / press into place, wipe away excess and blend it with the metal edges, then let sit for a day, sand edges smooth and spray bomb that bish.

Thanks Scoot! I'll get it pulled apart, cleaned up and over to you.

I did bend the brake lever out...just not enough. And I'm guessing that turning Fugs on his side in the lot, wiping the excess oil away with my sock and mixing the JB Weld up with a twig from a nearby shrub didn't't quite constitute "prepping."

Ya we maybe should have let it cool more before hand too. Oh and not used a twig, that was prolly not the best tool for smoothing.
