I realize JB weld is an option. It's a small hole so maybe I'll consider it later but would rather here comments on a proper repair.

My Kubota tractor has a small bubbling leak right where the top radiator inlet (for the hose) connects to the top metal tank. How nice of it to leak with easy access, when does that ever happen!? ! :banana:

I have a welder but not sure what kind of metal I got here.

Not sure if radiator materials are standard or how I can check, if I can weld it, etc?

Radiator shops are sparse and out of the way where I live.
