I kinda filled in the injector holes on my 1.8 head, when it was on my 2002 and had a carb. Now I want to use the motor in a 320I and I need the holes back for injectors. Anyone have a sure fire way to remove jb weld?

Thanks

I would think that high heat (above 500 degress F), and that stuff should melt.

Or drill it out.

HTH,

Lyle no JB Weld expert, but learning the way surely.....

heat it with a propane torch and chip it out the rest of the way. You'll still want to run a tap through the hole when you're done.

Take the manifold off the engine first and do this in a well ventilated area away from flammable materials. You don't want to breathe too much scorched epoxy fumes.

You're not going to have any luck heating it up. It resists heat up to 300degC! I think your best bet is to drill it out and retap.
