Glue up

Plastic epoxy........
Found some stuff at Auto Zone that I will try to glue up my overflow bottle with. The package actually shows an overflow bottle on the label so I'll see if this is going to work. It does say on the package not recommended for polyetholine type plastics but I sanded and cleaned the area to be glued real well so it should work. As long as it will with stand heat and antifreeze it should work. I looked it up in the internet and it didn't say anything about that just not to use for patching fuel tanks.

It's not the destination, it's the journey.

If it were me I would replace it...... but as a TEMPORARY fix I would have used Permatex Plastic Welder. I've used that on plastic body parts without issues.

I want to replace it but that part is not made anymore and I cannot find one anywhere. I have contacted several salvage yards that handle older vehicles with no luck. I have also contacted several Mercury/Ford dealers and they cannot find one. I have done a lot of searching on the internet too wit only finding a few that may not be any better than the one I have. I found one on ebay and they did not garrantee it to be good. If you know of any place that may have one please let me know!!!

Yes sir!!
This is a 1984 Mercury Cougar LS 3.8 V-6. The overflow bottle is the square one that attaches to the left inner fender right behind the core support. If you could send me the info on where I might find one that would be great!!!

So far my glue up is looking good. This stuff is called H2 Hold and is one of those double syringe things that you squeeze out and mix. The glue has hardened very well and is not tacky anymore. I will let it cure another day or two and put it back in the car. I think it will hold as long as it will withstand heat and antifireeze.
