Found a small crack where the neck meets the radiator. I am not a welder, and was wondering what everyone's opinion was....

Would JB Weld be successful repairing the crack? It's very small and mainly bubbles when the engine heats up.
 
if the radiator is in decent shape i would take it to a radiator repair shop and have it fixed right. it shouldnt cost much at all.
 
I've soldered some holes in the past but did not have good luck with the neck. The problem is you loosen the the solder around the rest of it heating it up so you have to know what you are doing or it can be a cluster.

I don't know what temp is best but basically if you've soldered copper pipe for plumbing it is similar.
