The other day I noticed a coolant leak on my serpentine belt. I assumed it was the water pump. Upon installing a new pump a pair of the bolts would not simply hand tighten down. I went in with a chaser tap to fix the threads. Problem now is that someone who previously “fixed” this apparently tapped one of the holes incorrectly (I’m thinking they over tightened then tried to tap new threads but didn’t make it perpendicular). So now this bottom left bolt hole is off and the bolt won’t sit flush. I’m trying to figure a way to keep this from leaking (Whomever did this previously was able to accomplish this) without pulling out the housing/assembly and retapping/helicoil etc. I will later go in and learn to do this etc but I currently don’t have the time to learn how to properly do it (also have registration due soon/smog).
