      Well,
      I"m going to need the transmission pulled so I can get the "flange" where the the Drive ale connects machined.

      I had a broken bolt in one of the six holes and when it got extracted and retreaded the retread is not straight. I can not get a proper seal on the inner cv joint due to this.

      Any suggestions on where I can go OR who could help me?

      You'll probably have to put a helicoil in that hole. I don't know of a shop that will do it, but worse case, just run the 5 good bolts and try to forget about it

      If you stripped out the flange, just get yourself a puller, and replace the flange.. It's alot easier than dropping the tranny.

      I hope I painted the correct picture of what my issue is..

      where the inner CV Joint mounts to the transmisison on the drivers side. the "flange" (circle with 6 threaed holes).. One of the holes was rethreaded and is"crooked" the bolt does not tighten flush with the "flange"..

      I was told that the "flange" is pressure mounted to the transmission and can not just be removed.. said pressure could "kill me" if it was not taken off properly...

      is my problem area

      the small circle: was retrhreaded, but crooked, so now the bolt won't tighten down flusch for a tight seal.

      Big circle: can this whole piece be replaced? and if so how?

      Why not put a washer(s) under the head of the bolt to shorten the grip length a bit so that was you can tighten the CV joint down more?

      hmm, you relly think that would work?

      might work, but at this point it sounding like the whole drive axle is loose now..

      Bro, a VR drive shaft is expensive. I know a company that can replace the ends on a drive shaft if you need this. I replaced both of mine last year. I first go the aftermarket ones from ECS and they broke a few weeks later, then I bought the OEM ones and so far, working great. but if you need this piece, I can send you the number to my friend. His company makes these and I am sure its cheaper than a VR shaft.

      P.s. I also see you leaving Sembach and that your ride sounds so nice!
