Hi,

As mentioned in my new member post I've got a '97 T80.

I've been stripping it and have found a few issues  Oil Drain Plug Damage 1f600

Found this damage around the oil drain plug...had remnants of some kind of putty there to stop leaks which I've picked off.  What are my options for repair?

Cheers

Mark

Looks like a Helicoil thread insert has been fitted and casting broken away. Difficult to weld and get flat face, You could fit a taper plug that would then tighten and seal on thread. You could try a silicone sealant on the thread of original plug. Other than that you will need to source a replacement crankcase or complete engine unit.

Thanks John, I don't think it was actually leaking so will try bit of silicone on original plug and maybe a bit of JB Weld to build up the casting. Will make sure I prep the surface well first. Worth a shot anyway!

Cheers!
