Well, I'm new here so let me start off by saying hello and this looks like a great forum.... I have an 82 Burban that was handed down to me from my step-dad, that has had like 15 previous owners. Anyways, the restoration process has been hell so far and can only get better right??? Ok now on to my problem... I'm pretty familiar with GM since I was in the Army and worked on trucks all the time. My Tranny has a problem though. The threads where the transfer case bolt to the tranny are stripped out. Looks like the previous mechanic tried to use the bolts to lock the two back together after replacing the mount on the crossmember and stripped them out. My question is can the bolt holes be drilled out and Helicoiled back to stock bolt size or should I be looking for a new tranny? I know these tranny housing can be fragile and I don't wanna waste my time with trying to redo the threads. Any info would be appreciated.
