Well as the title says...I have head this head off for the 3rd time now and never had a problem putting the oil line that runs from the turbo back into the side of the head...After 3 hours of work and putting everything back together I started the car and started to shoot oil right out where that bolt and 2 copper washers go....I pulled the bolt out and there was a little piece of metal wrapped in the grooves of the bolt...I know this means its starting to strip itself....How can I go about fixing this without going to a machine shop AGAIN, can I t ry and rethread it.....or put something in there to help the bolt bite into the grooves or am I shit out of luck??? When I put the bolt in I used 2 new copper washers as well and only tightned till it was snug. IDEAS WELCOME!!! Fix this and it will drive for the first time in 4 months!!!
