Once. I had it all finished up and got it running and it was blowing loads of water out of the clutch cover up by the water pump. I had a broken bolt in the case and I'm having trouble getting it out. I may end up having to split the cases to get it fixed properly. The previous owner somewhere down the line was a moron. There were two stripped bolts in the clutch cover I had to fix and then this broken one.Have you ridden it?
So would that allow me to back the copper bolt out and have perfect threads your saying? Interesting idea!Wonder if you could find a copper metric bolt to go in there when you build up the weld
Yeah I know. I don't know what the idiot did. I do know the bolt was bottomed out at the bottom of the hole. I'd say he simply put a bolt that was to long and then broke it. Who knows.wow, thats the problem with aluminum and steel bolts, the idiot probably didn't have the waterpump shaft aligned with the gear and went to put the cover on and when it didnt go in all the way he just kept turning the bolt thinking it would suck the cover in! once that steel is sucked tight and starts stripping its game over....that was a risky fix but im glad its working out for you, last resort...id have done the same thing, cut the fucker out...
