So four years ago I took my E30 for some serious repairs and basically was F'ed without even being kissed . So here I am four years later going through everything and getting it road ready again. I have fixed 80 percent of the messed up issues that the shop messed up and hit a roadblock. I noticed when I got it back from the shop it had a small oil leak so now after tracing the issue I have found it to be stripped threads for one of the bolt holes, and of course it is one of the two that are right next to the flywheel. Has anyone ever run into this issue? If so what did you do to fix? I have thought about a heli-coil, pulling the motor tig welding the hole and re-tapping, but honestly I don't want to pull the motor for one oil pan issue. The last idea I had was to make a plate that will use the two bolt holes on either side of the issue to put enough pressure on the gasket to make it seal. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
