Cam shaft holder - stripped threads - May 16, 2012, 08:34 PM

So tonight we attempted to install the camshaft. We got to the point where we were tightening the bolts that hold down the cam shaft holders, and found that two of the threads on the head were stripped.

Advice?


Cheers

Heli coil. Just be careful when drilling and determining depth.

Excellent, never used those before. Should be an adventure. Any other tips?

Take your time, use grease on the drill bit so the metal flakes don't fly into the engine, measure twice drill once. I'm sure there are some youtube videos on installing them.

Heh. Yup, after I posted that I found helpful youtube videos. I like your tip about grease though. Thanks!
