Default Re: Stripped threads... no problem

Best way to repair stripped threads in aluminum is to use Helicoils. They will give you a repair that's stronger than the original and you can use the same size bolt as before. Most auto parts stores have them, not real cheap but worth it. These things are good enough to be approved for thread repairs on aircraft engines.
