Default filler metal

i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on filler metal to use on a intake manifold.

i am planning to trim off all the casting stuff i dont need and fill in any holes.

i also have a nose cone on a trans that needs some filler metal as well.

i've used Loctite's Metal Magic steel epoxy putty with good results. i think they make an aluminum version as well? but i think the steel one works with aluminum...

For the trans nose cone, either get a new one (most are bolt on) or get a ToB with a repair sleeve. The sleeve is a snug fit on the old nose (may need to file down ridges on the nose) and a ToB with a slightly larger ID. This means you will ALWAYS need the different bearing so make note of it.
Welding may distort the tube and the ToB may hang up.

For filler, like pretty much any welding, it depends on the base metal. I would guess cast aluminum filler is different from plate material.

For the intake, I would an epoxy like stated earlier, let cure, then file and paint as needed. Little holes are not structural and if you get blobs inside, pretty hard/impossible to fix.

Soooooo.......you shortend the TAIL CONE which allows the driveshaft go to the rear diff (which you don't have).
Nose cone is usually the front of the trans by the clutch.
