Bobs nose cone install advice

Whatís peopleís experience on installing the nose cone? Has anyone had and success using the epoxy or is welding it on the only way to go? It will be going into a brand new gear case and canít afford for it to be damaged by a welder who doesnít know what heís doing

I’ve not installed one it I’ve read that the epoxy cracks. Boats are held together with epoxy so it must be a prep thing if you ask me. Also seen mention of jbweld being used. Welding sounds more permanent but I’d be nervous on my gearbox
