    Pump Housing Nut Insert Dislodged

    Greetings. I'm a newbie here and need some guidance.

    While changing the gaskets on my Hayward Super II pump housing, the bolts were over tightened causing the threaded inserts to dislodge. Mu question is what is the best method to re-insert them and prevent separation & leaking?

    A fellow pool enthusiast suggested using J B Weld (water rated product) but I'm seeking other suggestions and alternative methods to correct this problem.

    Thank in advance for your time and expertise:confused:

    I'm not sure that could be counted on to hold. Very risky at best. what if it comes loose when it's running?....you don't want that.

    if it were me I would buy a new pump housing.
