Mike, as Sven mentioned, the transmission is the oil pan. Down the road if you need to pull the motor or tranny, you could swap out the transmission for the right fix.For now, however, that JB weld idea could work out very well. Get an oil pan drain plug repair kit at an Auto parts store. It will have the drain plug, as well as a small 3-5 inch round plate to weld to a traditional pan. Trim the plate down to best size. If you get the case 100% clean (Simple Green and toothbrush will work well), you could form a doughnut of JB weld on the mating side, and follow that a larger one of it on the outside of the plate. That way you don't have to try drilling or tapping, and just use the existing drain. Try looking for Weldstick. It's better than the JB weld. Best of luck.
