Default bell problem

Hi all I was wondering if it was safe to solder my bell on my KM. It hasn't broken off, but it was welded on bad and I can move it around. When I check for leaks water spits out of the bell part. This is because water slowly drips into the bell. This should be a quick fix, but once again... is soldering safe? The inner pipe itself is fine, but when once again I check for leaks, the bell leaks air.

This is a second replacement for my trimetal which the first one has severe hose port leaks and other issues.
I'm not gonna send this one back lol cause mahir will kill me.
Also this one was sent straight out of KM

Yep jb weld is the way to go if you don't have a welding station, I've repaired my leaky stem with it and it's as good as new now.
