Basically it's a product designed so anybody can weld. No special equipment necessary, cover area to be welded with flux, heat until turns a certain color (brown usually) then apply the welding rod to the area without heating the rod.

They have videos of it repairing radiators without fin damage, pitting, filling chunks in, etc.

I'm looking at it to fill the transmission holes that were fubared when trying to drill/tap the new holes for the shift linkage. If I'm reading/understanding their website right, I just need the aluminum-worthy stuff, cover the holes and areas around the holes with the flux, heat until brown & stick the rod in and call it a day.

Looks like the other 'big' product out there is Dura Fix. Same principal, but no flux. Heat until it runs like solder and fill. The flux is built into the rods that do the filling.

I'm thinking of trying one or the other.

you do realize that the aluminum the tranny is made of is very porus?
i'm assuming you don't know anyone with a tig?
