One of the magnets on the flywheel on my recently acquired Mercury Sail Pro has come adrift. The magnets (2) are glued to the inside of the flywheel. Anybody have any suggestions on what to use to glue them back on? Lots of info on the net but it is sometimes hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. If anyone here had done it successfully I'd be keen to hear of your experience.
Cheers etc.

I wonder if one of the Mods might fix the thread title for me. I posted this via my phone and with fat fingers, suspect eyesight and the dreaded Spellcheck it came out as Reducing, not REFIXING as I had intended.

Both of these will do a metal2metal, high temp and water resistant job.

In emergency you could even a plain superglue or a contact adhesive if that's all you have around , just stay away from epoxy type glues as they begin to soften when heated up.
Clean the surface with acetone to get the best adhesion possible.
cheers

JB Weld. American "cold weld" two pack, read the testimonials. I was very sceptical, but this stuff is fantastic. about twenty years ago I repaired a dinner plate with it, it has survived twenty years of almost daily dishwasher washing. Since then I have repaired umpteen unfixable things all with perfect results. Only downer is it is grey when mixed.
