Which bolt/hole? Is it the oil drain? Is it in the cover or the case?

Yep some more info would help.

Leaky holes are never good.

OK

I`ll be quiet now.





That was a weak attempt at humor.

I have the same problem with my 65. Mine is not a bolt hole though, it is an "indent" on the top side of the cover,about in the center. It was split about 1/2" long, very narrow width. It was literally augering oil out. I hit it with a very small wire wheel and soldered it up. I would have JB'd it but I was out. I was afraid to wire weld it because of the thickness. So far ok.
