Looks I won't be getting my trans installed today. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif My replacement trans has a cracked bell housing. Very small for now, I couldn't even see it till I cleaned it up, but it's the typical crack that eventually releaves it of the upper mounting boss. Now I'm stuck. Not sure whether to drill it and hope for the best (not likely with my luck and the way I beat on it), look for another, or maybe try one of those bolt on steel repair housings (never an issue again or so I gather). What do you guys think? (See pics below) Anyone every successfully drilled a crack like this and had it hold up? I don't want to try to weld it due to the low probability of success and high probability of making it worse. Never caught one before it was trash before, so I have no experience in fixing them. Searched the web, Jegs, and Summit for those steel housing to get an idea on price. No luck. Anyone got a link handy?
