Liquid Metal?

I have a old classic car that has a cast iron flange that has been broken and repaired with a cast iron weld. It's like a CVC flange that the axle goes through and a rubber boot attaches around it for grease retention. It has no weight on it and the cast iron weld is holding but provides a poor irregular surface for the boot to seal with. Isn't there a paste or liquid engine repair? I thought Paul Harvey was pushing a product like this a couple of years ago? Any voice of experience out there?

if you are just trying to get the boot to seal on the cast iron why not just glue it in place with 3M weatherstirp adhesive. they dont call it elephant snot for nothing.

Im a big fan of the JB Weld Kwik. It sets up in just a few minutes. It can be sanded, drilled, machined, and painted. Great stuff, Id give it a try.
