Re: stripped thread in lower unit oil fill hole

I've come to like Time-Sert substantially better than heli-coil. Whichever you use, you'll need to be sure you don't leave metal shavings in the gear case from drilling out the current hole. The Time-Sert, will then return the hole to its original size/thread.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
