07 trx400 oil drain bolt housing cracked

Recommended Posts

A friend has a 07 trx 400ex..the engine drain bolt housing has a couple of cracks where the drain bolt threads in and is leaking oil...a one had any luck sealing this area with JB weld or something similar ?

We had a member that had this problem.  It’s a tough call working with this sort of thing.  

JB well does work but it’s not a permanent fix by any means.   There are secondary drain plugs you can install that get installed and they have another drain plug that’s within the new plug. Much smaller hole but it works.  You could install that and carefully thread it in with high heat silicone.  That should hold on for a while but you have to constantly check it.  

Second way to do it is have a good heli arc welder weld the cracks and maybe re tap it.

Hey Bro I used these myself on spark plugs that got striped out and never had a problem so thing I go this route over the JB weld any time.I used it ti in crazy places always worked but if you lost the oil that work but the end if it.

Good luck hope it works for ever what route you choose buy heli coil is very safe and no real pressure on it either like a spark plug has

      Just bought Kawasaki Prairie 650 vtwin 2002 and replaced old carb with new, but the bolts to hold down the air housing are missing. Anyone have any idea what size they are? I apologize for not being very mechanically inclined. Any help would be much appreciated.

      I was given a "Go-Kart" its an old Carter brothers dlx150 but the engine is not the same that came with this Kart. I am trying to ID it so i can look at getting some parts for it. the pictures attached are of the motor and the only ID marks on it. I am thinking its some sort of 200cc from the 1980's does anyone have a better Idea? I am really trying to get a rebuild kit for the carburetor. on the carburetor is  Keihin 63 AA YKT

      Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. 
      It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless.
      thanks in advance
