    Repair coil

    I broke a ear off my Aquasound coil. I tried repairing it twice. The first time I used JB Weld and next I used Loctite Marine Epoxy. They both failed when I tried to install coil. I roughed up both pieces for good adhesion and let it cure longer than required. Anyone know what might work. Thanks…Ed

    Just my opinion, but I don't believe you can bond a broken ear back to the coil without adding an additional brace. Find an "L" shaped piece of non-metallic material (extruded angle PVC) and cut off a short piece (1/2" to 1") and attempt to bond this to the coil and the broken ear for additional support.

    Look up Mel Parker, I'm not sure if he is still doing them or not.

    If I remember correct he used a solvent mixture (MEK) along with old pieces of coils, all mixed and melted by the solvent to shape a new one. The solvent eats into the old coil but its a pour mixture so some kind of jig frame is needed.

    Not sure if this offer is still open, or if it will actually work for you. I bought a set several years ago just in case, but haven't had to use it yet.

    I have used PC7, a two part epoxy that comes in small cans. Mix per instructions on the can.
    Then drill two or three holes in the "ear" and made sure the epoxy goes through
    the holes and then made an over size "pad" all around the "ear" on the top of the coil.
    Rough up the areas that the PC7 will adhere to. Make sure the epoxy is contiguous from
    above the drilled holes, all around the "ear" and down to the top of the coil and make
    a complete circular pad area around the ear. Let it cure for at least 24 hours.

    You might try an l brace or complete u style made out of Lenox plastic. Nautilus....you might contact the owner his coil may fit or he may have the ears....his name is Wayne if I remember right. Rex Johnson was doing those ears I think for Rudy. He might help. Pm me I think I have his email. I’ve got Mel’s email as well.
