late MY Porsche 944 - going to try a hasty text-only post sans pics first:
I have a new transmission mount (mount A). there are two holes w/o threads that match the holes on another mounting piece (mount B) on the transmission. Mount B is attached to the transmission. mount B has threads that two M8 bolts thread into, securing mount A to mount B.
In my case, mount B cannot be removed (I have tried though - this would be good to discuss on another thread maybe…). I broke a bolt off inside it, so I tapped a new hole. The hole is off-center and off-axis of mount A because I was sloppy. The error is perhaps 5-10%. I figure I have to choose from the following:
- reaming the unthreaded hole on mount A so the bolt matches up to the tapped hole.
- re-visit the removal of mount B - including cutting it off (aluminum, soft).
- try an old mount A as a test, see how it does
what would you do, any different ideas?
UPDATE : here’s a pic of what I am talking about: there’s a bolt in the hole that’s OK - the empty hole is the problem. You can see the a crescent-shaped bit of mount B through the hole of mount A - therefore, that amount has to be removed from mount A on the opposite side to fit the bolt through. … and the mounts are upside-down but anyways, …
