    The cheapest magnesium filler I could find was $85 for a half pound from McMaster-Carr.

    I believe the mechanic did pull the case off. Had to to intall a spacer plate inside so it quits rubbing. Mine was caught during an oil change and it must have just poked through. Maybe a diameter of 1/8 if that.

    Is there room to tap the holes and put screws in? Could save a lot of work if it can be done.

    Did you do the merchant auto kit? How bad of a leak did your case have? Do you actually have to remove the case from the truck because it won't clear the crossmember that is right behind it? I've got an 06 lbz and I'll need to do this soon...
