If the leak is where the insulator touches the metal, JB Weld should work 
ok, as long as you ore careful not to let any of it get on the insulator 
itself, other than where it contacts the metal case.

As an alternative to JB Weld, try Two Ton crystal clear epoxy.  It will 
withstand high voltages and is also an excellent rf dielectric.  I have used 
it to repair kw size HDVL type plug-in coils.  It hardens crystal clear, and 
is practically impossible to remove without an epoxy solvent.
