Does it unscrew? If it does, unscrew it, clean it with contact cleaner, put jb weld on the threads, and screw it in.
I'll come down there tomorrow and fix it for you if you buy me a case of southern tier creme brle.

What if you drive it up here and it's an aluminum fitting...and the oil pan is aluminum, right? It could be tig welded to no leakage...

Yuppers but that means pulling the motor, pulling pan, resealing the pan :(

Seriously. If you remove your pan and ship it to me, I will weld a bung on there for free.

Hey so who thinks I can get my oil fitting tack welded onto the pan, without exploding the pan??

Tack weld would keep the bung on the pan, and I can just seal it with jb. And not have to pull the motor.

Yeah that's my point--- aluminum melts at 2000 degrees. Oil burns at like 400 degrees :(

it probably costs more in shipping, I got mine done for $30, lol.

min do it right. pull the engine, take the trans/clutch/flywheel off, put engine on a stand, clean all mating surfaces etc etc etc.

How big is the hole? I once saw on some Speed TV show a guy doing some road rally get a small hole in his gas tank I think, he drilled a hole on the tank and put in a screw in that hole to hold gas. IDK if that would work for you, but there yeah go.

uh 1/4 NPT or something like that. whatever matches well with -8AN

this is a good idea though.

Except the hole is too big to screw.



That's what she said?

I'm not going to say this again...tig weld the fitting on while engine is in the car...nothing will happen, all will be well.
No more leaks/ 700whp/ game over.

i dont understand.

I have a drilled and tapped bung that is 1/2" pipe to -10 AN and it's slathered in JB weld and screwed into a 1/2" pipe hole in the oil pan. It's been there for a billion years and never leaked.





look how juicy it looks!
