No it doesn't. I have seen many guys on here use JB Weld to fix busted rads.

how should I go about keeping the separated part ajoined while it sets? (4-6hours:O?)
Just go by the instructions on the package to the letter and the repaired part will become the strongest section of the entire rad, guaranteed.
Just to let you know how strong that stuff is, you can actually take a big glob of it, let it dry, and use a tap-and-die kit to install threads into it that will be as strong as any steel threads. Anyone who has used it can attest to how amazing it is.Edited by PhillyOverclocker - 5/14/11 at 11:56am
