    Default Intake Epoxy

    What type of Epoxy have you found, to work the best for contouring intake ports?

    Geez, and all this time I thought you were a Belzona 1111 guy.

    I guess I just got hooked on the stuff from seeing what they do with in refineries.

    Yes, but just to give you an idea of the cost, this is a USA seller. Check the price difference.

    The stuff is not made here, its made in England so that may be the prime reason for the price difference. I have never bought the stuff anywhere but E bay, so I have no idea what it costs retail in the States.
    I have seen the stuff used to repair aluminum head decks that were eaten away around the water ports due to salt/brackish water, with ZERO issues.

    Just to give you an idea what it is capable of:

    One more time. Get some Splash Zone. You can get it from West Marine. It's what people who do this for a living use. I mean fill intake ports, not fix pipe flanges.

    And of course you see the cashier on your way out of the rifinery right? I ALWAYS do. But then I am honest to a fault

    I imagine there is a number of epoxys that will do the job just fine. Its not exactly what I would call and extreme evironment for any decent epoxy. Grumpy Jenkins used Devcon years ago, and I don't remember anybody having problems with the stuff. I have no doubts that most GOOD epoxies have improved some in the past 40 years

    I didn't take it a friend of mine did. I'm not a boiler maker. I have to work for a living. I've had trouble in the past with intake expoxy with alky coming loose. What's the reason for that?

    Devcon has been known to come loose with fuel and doesn't have the temp rating that Splash Zone does. There are probably a few who still use Belzona but as Darin Morgan will tell you, Splash Zone is the only epoxy he's aware of that will stand up to the abuses of a racing engine. Every head porter that I know or know of, uses the stuff. It's pretty much an "industry standard" in racing, like Belzona or Devcon is in the industrial world. I use Devcon for bedding rifle actions, but not for filling intake ports.
