Check out my crack...

What's the best way to fix this?...

Best idea so far is to clean it all up, sand the bottom side real good and find a piece of durable plastic I can shape and form to the bottom, and sand it as well. Then hold it all together somehow and epoxy the formed plastic to the bottom side. After curing, drill holes on both sides of the crack and thread wire through like shoelaces for support, pull tight and tie off.

Seems like I read about some kind of goop you could use in this situation but I forget what it was called. I believe it would take the place of the epoxy.

Right now I need advice on what kind of plastic to use and how to source it, as well as what kind of epoxy.

I'm all ears.

You can buy a plastic mesh. It is for some kind of craft. Where u take the short pieces of yarn and make a picture. It is just a white plastic mesh and you can cut that to the size you want. The take a hear gun and slowly melt it into the ATV plastic. I have done it and it works great if you take ur time. If u melt it too quick, then it is just stuck to the surface and will fall off the next time u run. Too slow and you melt the plastic piece. But you will probably take 5-10 minutes per area. Also if u go too slow if you spot with the heat gun u can burn it.

Or drill a hole on each size and put a zip tie through them. Wire might work too

But that looks like a foot well. Why not just buy a new one? It would be like $20 of eBay for a used one.

      Let me know what you guys think. Just registered as a member here and thought I'd bring something to the table. I probably have around 50 or so ATV how-to videos on my channel. Please let me know what you think!

      So I have oil that comes out of out a small crack next to one of the top bolts.
      Anyone know a way to seal this or fix it without buying a whole new cylinder head?
      I was hoping there was something I could put on the crack to seal it or I know a welder that could just weld over it??
      Thanks again,
      Keith
