Thanks, Larry.  I hadn't thought of that.

I'm not sure I'd use JB weld - I've heard (but not verified) that powdered
steel is used in it for filler. That would explain it's color, if true.
Depending on how it's applied, it may compromise the voltage rating of the
insulator. I think you'd be best off using silicone.
