Re: CJ - Auto Trans Pan Seal new jeep parts Info.
Humm... Longer Bolts? That's interesting. Infact, I've already stripped one bolt hole using the proper torque setting. Aluminum ain't too forgiving. So when I get the Jeep out here it's getting drilled tapped and helicoiled.
Untill I started using the cork gaskets I couldn't seal that transmission to save my life. It was bugging the heck out of me. I was about to start cutting and forming little tabs to fit between the bolts that would extend the torque and provide a better seal. I still may do that.
In some areas on the TF999 a longer bolt really ain't too good of an idea. How long were the new bolts?
