AC Evap Core Housing material?

Searching for what the type of plastic the AC Evap Core Housing is made of?

The drain line barb that stuck out from the bottom broke off and I need to fabricate something to weld to the type of plastic.

If anyhow has alternative techniques, I'm all ears!

But, I'm thinking it's ABS.

Does anyone know?

If it was mine I'd just epoxy a new barb on there if the broken piece is mia.
Trying to plastic weld aged 70's plastics usually just gets ugly.

This is true...

I was going to get a new barb, cut to match the surface of the housing, sand the surface of both sides, the weld together using whichever chemical weld matches the plastics if it is ABS...

That would hold better than epoxy, wouldn't it?

If it isn't ABS... If not, then I'd epoxy.

Get some Q-Bond. It glues most any kind of plastic and fills in cracks very well.

It's a powder that you sprinkle into the crack, break, or space between parts that you want to glue then drip a liquid hardener onto. It sets instantly into plastic that can be shaped, ground, or filed. You can build it up too. I love it.

Super easy...

Ended up at home crappo, got a cheap 3/4 male thread to Barb sitting.

But the threading off with a saw, sanded down with a 400 grit to make it at least flat but rough.

Used a jb weld pUtty and BOOM!
