Dip stick fix?

I've got my motor pulled and on a stand.
I plan on addressing the common pan leak at the dip stick.
Has anybody ever tried welding a bead around the inner and outter flange with a mig welder?

Dont do that. The adapter is aluminum. Tried it. Didnt go so well, If you could braze it you might have better luck considering the different metals.

Ive used both the strictly diesel dipstick fix and put a new adapter in. When I used the new adapter I ran a bead of right stuff gasket maker around the inside and out. That stuff is seriously tough

Is the dipstick leak common only in the northern states?

Nope I'm in Texas and I have the leak but it's not terribly bad yet so I'm letting it go until it gets real bad then I'll buy strictly diesels part

nope it's common all over the place. eventually the orings swell and pushs out o there grooves breaking the seal. then some idiot will come along and over tighten the adapter so that it is distorted and will never seal correctly.
