2017 700 TRV oil plug cross thread
Hello All, this is my first post. I cross threaded my drain plug and want to replace the oil strainer cap(oil pan) rather than tap out the hole. There is almost no space between the lower frame cross-bar and the front two bolts that hold in the oil strainer cap. I have removed the two lower engine mounts bolts. The engine hasn't really moved much. What would be the next step to loosen the engine so that i can get a torx bit into the head of the two bolts? The oil strainer cap is still on back order for a couple of weeks. I am starting to think 'i should just go to a bigger size bolt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
