Turbo 350 hose question

Postby beakerztoyz » Mon May 02, 2016 8:46 pm

Alright I'm stupid and when double checking bolts i overtightened one and now it seems to be stripped, but I have no idea what its holding in, the hose it appears to hold tight goes down into the trans right under the 2 lines that go to the radiator. the vacuum line and modulater are back further on the trans. This thing has a hose or something that goes up over the trans the bolt i overtightened holds a plate which holds it in, anyone know what it is ? or does? any ideas on how to seal it now? Thanks, TJ

I think it's held in by a 1/4-20 bolt. You should be able to find a slightly larger self tapping screw that will hold it in. Or get the hole real clean and put J-B Weld in there and run the bolt in flush. As long as the cable is in the hole, it's o-ring will seal it.

I was thinking along the same lines TJ, but a product I haven't seen in years came to mind first "Form a Thread", I thought this was a "Loctite" product, but easily could have been "Devcon" or some other brand. So I did a quick search and found this: http://www.na.henkel-adhesives.com/prod ... 7876355073 and from right here in Canada: http://www.crlaurence.ca/crlapps/showli ... delID=5680 And with more searching it seems it was a Permatex product [Devcon and Permatex are both ITW owned now] as they use the Form a XXXX format but this has a new name: http://www.thehubcompanies.com/81668_Pe ... Repair_Kit. I would consider a Heli-Coil if you can access from the bottom for chip control, but that will still require some form of sealant to prevent drips. Harry

Thanks for the knowledge and advice guys, I really had no idea what that was I suppose I just assumed the kickdown cable went to the area where the shifter cable went. I'll end up using one of the solutions you 2 have posted I think.
