Another bad move getting rid of my old parts. I think I could use this stock rear section of my trans crossmember. What do I do for the front? My L did not come with anything there, the gd member doesn稚 reach.
As for the threaded plugged holes I値l check it out next time I知 at the shop.
Also, decided remove the trans again..... I値l tap that hole in the block again but with a 11mm bolt, jam it in there w more thread sealant and cut off the head. (A stud will be sticking out)
Then I will go ahead and correctly drill & tap THE BELLHOUSING and reinstall.
I found a few short blocks but I don稚 have the time or tools to swap blocks or even replace rings/bearings and reassemble. It値l be too much work and cash considering I have a new engine on installment payments.
