    I know aluminum can we be welded but welding this spot would be a nightmare around the rod.
    Hi,

    If it is crack no worries.

    Remove the case, clean
    it very very good and take
    it a guy whom weld aluminum.

    Then after you weld it, take
    it to to Machine shop and you
    can machine the whole back
    to original spec.

    It may require to make a
    sleeve and cut up to size.

    We are getting close.

    Regards,
    Anri

    Thanks Anri, it sounds like given the amount of work it may be worth finding a used (not cracked ) cover.


    However finding a 265/6 cover will be difficult i understand.

    Hey guys, I haven’t had this looked over properly yet since my mechanic hasn’t had time but he was able to look over it very quickly and said the seal is not seated evenly around the shifter rod, this might mean a bent rod. I plan on taking it back this week, but im really hoping its not bent.

    The car is currently at the shop, and the culprit is a cracked rear cover. I have a spare 265/6 transmission but i cant seem to find a rear gasket for the 265/6. It does show it for the 265/5 but the shape does not appear to be the same. Any idea?
