I don't see why not. I've patched a lot of different things
(including a Model T cylinder head, a Model T block, and the oil pan
on an E30 BMW,) with JB Weld. If its a crack, I clean the surface
and inside the crack as well as I can, and then force the JB Weld
into the crack. I then cover the area of the crack with another
layer of JB Weld. Let it sit overnight before use. (In the case of
the Model T Block, the crack was in the cylinder bore. We were able
to fill the crack and re-machine the cylinder (bore and hone) and get
the engine back into service in two days.
JB Weld really is incredible stuff.
