Looks like trans oil got hot and stopped working. Time for a heatshield, bro. ...if it isn't too late...

I'm going to agree with G. Motorcraft isn't for track use. Amsoil should stand up to higher temps. Heat shield will happen eventually.

I'm surprised with how the welding turned out. I'm not going to show off my practice pieces.

Yes. But I didn't trust my welding enough to drill that big of a hole. I also didn't have a big enough bit.
Its not a high flow area so I'm not worried.

I guess 2 feet might be all I need. I'll measure tonight. I should be fine just covering around the trans case right?

If its on prime I'll order tonight.

Ooh, I like those. I think I'm gonna pickup a couple of those for near the diff and tranny; a nice, simple solution to a problem I don't feel like solving right now.

Isn't it an NPT bung(so therefore tapered threads)? That's the only thing that concerns me about it.

I did think about that. Its correct. The bung had material on either side of the lip.

An already designed product for $44 that takes zero time out of your already hectic schedule?

Seems like a great price to me.

If it gives you any perspective Aidan, I will be purchasing the 3 footer from Amazon.

Just one datapoint: I've been tracking my car with Motorcraft for a few years and it seems to be working well... I switched to the Amsoil and it made my 3rd gear synchro feel like it was gone. Switched back to new motorcraft and all is well again.


And I'll do 5 track days on the same motor oil.

I still don't think we're talking about the same issue here...

But! WTF!
ebay 3/8" NPT Weld bung

$17 + $10 shipping and the outside edge of the stock isn't even finished. And they claim they've sold at least 5. I should start making and selling weld bungs on ebay with the scrap aluminum I have around.

I think I might purchase it.

Gesso, the weld bung had a lip in the middle of it. And I made sure it was facing the correct direction.
Its already installed and working.
