8.25 Chunk Cover Threaded Bung

After taking the rear chunk cover off to do a fluid change, I realized the rubber plug was beginning to deteriorate and needed replaced. So I opted to have the unthreaded bung cut out and replaced with the threaded bung from a D60. Originally we thought it needed to be cut out with a plasma, but then realized a hole saw would work just fine.

Finished product. I'm not grinding anymore. I don't want to compromise the integrity of the welds.
