Evinrude lower unit screw threaded

Recommended Posts

I have a 93 evinrude 8 hp motor, and when changing the oil in the gearcase, I tightened the lower screw (that goes in on a 45 degree), andnow it dosent tighten, it just keeps spinning. (The screw is ok, just the threads that are in the lower unit)

 

How can I fix this? Will a "form-a-thread" type epoxy work? Or is there something else I should try?

 

Please help!

 

Thank-You!!
