[DML] Re: re-Opinions, & Assistance Greatly Appreciated!



Although not quiet the same, my first attempt at repair was to have 
two ally 10mm thick plates TIG welded over the top deeper holes. This 
worked for a few months, unfortunatly the oil just found the next 
weakest spot in the casting to force it's way out of,,
