Get a cork and plug the hole with that, there's no pressure since the pumpkin is vented, anything that you can stuff in the hole ought to do the job. I'd sure try a cork or whittle a piece of wood and stick it in the hole with a bit of Permatex gasket sealer after making sure the final is full. That ought to get the thing running for a lot of miles. Even some duct tape might hold if you clean off the area with a degreaser.

You are right. Keith says that seems to be what the previus owner did. It was just waiting to break.

He tried the J.B.Weld and thinks it is going to hold.

yep...you can plug it with anything that will stand the heat..not much pressure here!!...and a bottle cork is a good idea and some sealer..or rubber stopper is better...make sure its very clean for anything to stick...and check it every stop

I can FED EX OVER NITE one from an 82 wing to a place he is staying if that will help.... let me know.
My son and I arrived home after a 23 day trip across all the western states, 6,482 miles.

:bowing:First I want to thank AspectOne for sending the rear drive plug to Kennewick, WA. I felt much more comfortable knowing we had a replacement for the rest of the trip if needed. The J. B. Weld worked on the plug all the way home. I will find another plug and return your's to you so you can sell the '82 rear drive complete. Thanks, Chris, Mana going your way.:bowing:

Thanks to all of you that responded to Nancy's plea for help. There sure are a lot of great people on this forum.:D

While catching up on my reading I found out that Chris and Berta didn't get to attend the ES meet. Sorry toread about your encounter with the Semi. Just glad you all are doing OK and not bad hurt. Noticed that you may be upgrading to a GL 1500. You both gonna love it.:clapper:
