Bolt at the rear of the left step got loose. With the vibration it stripped the bolt or the hole enough to just fall out. Transmission fluid comes out slowly from the hole.

I'm guessing I need to tap the hole, and replace the bolt. What I don't know is whether I should drain all the transmission fluid and pull off the whole plate holding the power take off lever.

You can jack up left wheel or drive up on block to keep oil to one side. This way you don't have to drain any oil. Also I've held a magnet on back side to catch shavings.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You can remove the side covers without draining all the fluid. Proper fluid level will be the level that it just flows out of the lowest bolt hole when it is removed.

To do the work mentioned by others you may need to drain some of the fluid. But the cover itself can be removed without draining much or any of the fluid (unless the level is too high to start with). Once off, I assume you can better determine your next course of action.

Does removing the side cover require draining all the transmission fluid first?

Shadetree, I don't think this is one of those "bonnet" or "boot" or "spanner" kind of things: I checked a good ol' Webster's Dictionary (not the Oxford English Dictionary, mind you) and "swarf" is right in there.

Thanks for teaching us a new term, John - I'm looking forward to the first chance I get to use it! (Maybe in a Scrabble game...)

First, be sure it has the right bolt. It should be a 7/16-14. Be sure someone didn't put a 3/8 in it's place.

If there is any thread left at all, you could put a 7/16 bolt in from the inside, snug it down with some lock-tite, then use it as a stud. Just be sure it's threaded all the way to the head.

If you do have to drill it out and retap it to 1/2-13, you can drain some of the oil out, clean the inside with carb cleaner, lacquer thinner, etc, make a duct tape catch pouch around the inside of the hole. That will catch the chips from drilling and tapping. Also coat the drill and tap in wheel bearing grease, that will help catch chips too.

If you drill it, you will get some swarf going inside so you need to catch all that by at the very least removing the Side Cover and catching it in something. John(UK)

Swarf? I've never heard that term before, but I like it! I'm always amazed at what I learn on this forum.

John, In this instance I simply call it what is, metal shavings or filings. Hmmm, or maybe you are using a term to indicate another four letter word that begins with S. Either way, I find it interesting, (and sometimes amusing,) at the different terms and phrases used in the UK and the US to describe the same thing.

I always have to remember where I am answering when I reply on here as there are different words used by us to what is used by other countries. It can make for a lively conversation sometimes. You could be right about that four letter word.. John(UK)

John, "swarf" was a new one on me, too, so I had to look it up.

I shoulda known you"d use the precisely correct term! LOL!

Well I'll be darned,I pretty much had it right! I honestly did not know that "swarf" was a real word. They say you learn something every day, and today I did. Thank you Tom.

I guess there are not a lot of gem cutters or factors on this forum. Swarf is a very well known (and hated) term in the gem cutting/polishing world.
