JB welding a radiator?

Quick question, my radiator has a really small crack in the seem underneath one of the hoses and it leaks when it gets heated up. Could I JB weld the crack as a temporary fix until I can afford a new radiator?

If you go the stop leak route make sure you dont add too much cause then your heater core will stop up and no one likes no heat. I say JB weld it
