Is this case shot

Rebuilding a buddys TH350 and it had two filters in it. One on the drive side and one on the return side of the Gov feed, the drive side came out with no problem the other not so much. We had to drill out the filter; it had a metal case not the plastic one. As you can see the hole is a lot, larger than it should be. Is this going to cause a problem? The hole is about an inch down, so it does go all the way down to the governor. The hole at the Gov bore is still the same size. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures. The hole is .328" i'm thinking of drilling it out to .375 (3/8) adding a bushing then drill that out, or just leave it, cuz the seperator plate will control the flow.

Does not look bad from here. Make sure the hole is clean, no burrs or cracks to cause leakage at the gasket or in the governor area
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

Thanks Crosley

As always you come to my rescue, your my new Superhero!!!

Ok the sealing part of the case to Sep Plate is good, but like I said the hole we bore out is only about an Inch deep and twice as big as it was before and about half of the total depth of the return feed channel. So I should be good to go without installing a bushing correct an run it as it is..
