Re: leaky trans plugs


I sorta missed the beginning of this conversation but are you saying the
17mm recessed hex socket drain plugs in your tranny leak?  The drain plugs
screw into a hole that get smaller as it goes inward (I forget the technical
term) so if you overtighten them, it can screw up the hole or possibly crack
the edges.  If they are just a little widened from overtightening, you can
probably use some Teflon tape around the drain plug threads to stop the
leaking, I had to do this on one of the reduction box drain plugs on my Bus.

No backup switch in 65. The plugs have always leaked in this car for
some reason--who knows why. A mechanic I know once had a 65 Notch with
the same problem, so maybe it's a flaw specific to the model year?
