Stripped out oil drain plug
Well, I stripped out one of the oil drain plug screws on my 07 Rubicon... any thoughts on repairing this? I bought a new bolt and it still seeps out a little bit. Any thoughts??
I thought about retapping the whole to a 13mm and calling it a day but i am worried about getting metal shavings inside the the crankcase? I tried to use a thread repair kit but the bolt doesn't appear to be any real common size 12mm bolt. I tried 12mmx1.25 12mmx1.5 and 12mmx1.75.. none of which match up to the bolt.
I really don't want to have to split the case. Is there some sort of trick to repairing this thing? Or Am i just S.O.L.???
