Default Clutch cover hole

I low sided last year at around 50 mph and see the result. Oil came out and before trying to repair anything I'd like to make sure the engine still runs good. Can some JB Weld be used temporary to cover the hole on the clutch cover side?

I would say yes, JB Weld would hold (temp) as the oil isn't on the other side like an oil pan.

That said if it is just a test, you could put some tinfoil over the hole and duct tape it with a pan underneath the engine. Your just starting it and getting up to temp before revving it up?

Yes it should hold.
But I would only do it temporarily.

Right, just want to rev it up and see if the engine got damaged. Iím not sure for how long it has been running with its oil dripping.

What would be the best JB Weld application for that? This is aluminium right?
