    I pulled the adapter off my 208 and the bottom bolt hole leaks. I thought it might be a drain but the flow was very minimal and on second look it doesn't seem to be a good place for a drain anyway.

    So is this supposed to function as a drain as well or do I have a leak?

    maybe they just messed up and drilled & tapped too far into the case. or maybe someone put too long a bolt in it and it cracked the bottom of the hole out.

    When it's bolted up it just stays wet, no noticable drips. I'm not worried but I thought I should check.

    Thanks

    Yeah there are 2 bolts that are all the way and could be used as a drain.
    I don't know if it was intentionnal but I noticed it was consistant with all the trannies I worked on.

    All of the 208's have the bottom most hole drilled all the way into the case. They will leak when the bolt is removed, not tight, or no sealant applied to the bolt when installed. I like to use the liquid teflon stuff (pipe thread sealant).
