Transmission mount bolt stripped out
I noticed that out of two mounting bolts, the one on the pass side was gone. I pulled the skids and cross member out to check it out. I priced a Heli coil set...TOO MUCH $...
I am trying two methods to repair..the treads are close so I bought the tap and retapped the threads...I'm going to try thread lock and a new bolt first.
If this doesn't work, I bought a 3/8 inch through bolt, nut, and lock washer. There appears to be enough room to put the nut on.
Has anybody had that bolt come out before? Does it just vibrate itself loose or is the torque of the trans ramming it out?
