If you properly prep the case around the ding by rasping it to roughen the surface JB weld will usually do the job.... I've used it on several case repairs with great success...

island hopper has the fix. but it's probably worth the time and a gasket to take the cover off,clean it inside and out with brake clean,rough it up and patch it on both sides. clean and oil free is the important point here.

If you are going to take it off + clean it anyway,Frankie at Micron Machine up in McNeil used to be a bike-freak and could TIG you up good as new!That is if they are even there any more.

Good Luck
