Yeah, I did give that a go, but it didn't hold. I cleaned it as well as I could with acetone and I scuffed it up with some sandpaper before applying the JB Weld. There was still pressure on the system, tough so that could have been part of the problem. I'm going to have to torch it off now and if I'm going to use a torch, well I might as well get some appropriate solder.
At church yesterday I had a couple of people that are willing to help me fix and recharge it. One of the guys is a retired HVAC guru and has some refrigerant. I'm thinking this may be my best option.
