This is exhaust port so have to consider combustion heat, that's why I am not trying the epoxy method.

Pavetim - There's a guy in Georgia, Jim French, who does automotive micro welding and I guarantee you two things: if it can be done, he cano it perfectly, and he is just about the nicest and most humble guy you'll ever come across. Here's a reference to his work (and a spectacular head specialist who can help you out if you get stuck)

Jim French said he can do the repair for 50-75 bucks, thats if nothing goes wrong like the hole opening up cause walls are too thin. So cross my fingers.

Excellent! I might have touched it for a price in that neighborhood, but head work is not my forte' so I'd have offered caveats and exclusions and all the legalese I could come up with. I would, however, have wanted a go if no one else would touch it. As I said previously, if no one thinks it can be done, what's there to lose? I will tackle anything I'm told "can't be done", and usually come out on top.

Dollar to a donut it will come back perfectly ready for machining :) I've seen lots of Jim's work; he's damned well deservedly renowned for his skills at micro welding. And he's a top flight bloke to boot.
