Default Re: Cylinder bolt problems about to throw it away

Installing a helicoil is actually very easy to do. All you need is a propper size drill bit and tap. A thread repaired with a helicoil is stronger than stock.

Part of your problem could be your torque wrench if it reads in ft lbs. I would use a wrench that reads in in. lbs.
