Tapping / rethreading drain hole
Changed the oil today and found out the bolt/drain threads are stripped. (keeps turning, tight then loose, tight then loose). The thing had no washer or gasket and had to use a breaker bar to unloosen it.
Anyway, as I understand my two options are:
1) Replace the pan
2) Retap the drain hole.
Any recommendations on machine shops, or machinists that have done this before and know what they're doing ? Places in west van would be really preferable, as I could ride the bike there and not have to get it towed.
Any other suggestions would be great.
my suggestion is go with option 1 right now or go with option 1 after wasting a bunch of time...
take the pan off and heli-coil it and yer set.
