If he had issues with the o-ring then it makes sense to try something else.

Ok, well, we've done a bunch of them. You can't do it by yourself, you need a helping hand and some welding wire. Guy up top holds the wire that has a hook on the end that holds the dipstick thing in...

Never heard of anything like that happening.
