The last mechanic who changed my tranny's oil .stripped three holes thread.He used 3/8 bolt to replace the 5/16 one.because this he chipped a piece of the aluminum off the mating surface,right by the thread hole(outer edge),about 2/3 size of a penney.now it is leaking.
Got a set of heli-coil to take care of those stripped holes.
How to fix this chip?
Will %26quot;J B weld%26quot; work?(high temp)?
or what else work better?What to use to fix a spot chipped off on the tranny%26039;s mating surface to oil pan?
JB Weld should do the trick. Heli-coil the stripped holes, Put a bolt in the hole then JB Weld where the aluminum chipped off. Pull the bolt out, (that was to keep the JB Weld out of the threads). Let the JB Weld dry for at least a day then sand the mating surface.What to use to fix a spot chipped off on the tranny%26039;s mating surface to oil pan?
Yeah it'll work for awhile...
The best thing to to do is to heliarc or TIG and grind it down.
Then make a gasket probably neoprene or some other oil
resistant material and thicker.
