Stripped transmission pan bolt hole
I searched, but I might have missed something.
Several of the bolts on my E4OD pan won't torque because the holes are stripped. I read somewhere on the net that you can use a longer bolt if it is on the sides of the pan, not the ends. I ended up getting things to work with m8-1.25x24 bolts with 2 washers. The x20 was too short.
It is still leaking because I need to swap 2 more bolts out (gotta run to hardware store this weekend), but I was pretty happy to get the new bolts to torque down.
