Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

To avoid stripping out the mounting studs holes from overtightening I took 2" 6mm hex head bolts and threaded on the nuts, then installed the bolts. When the hex heads bottom out I can then use my wrench on the nut to draw in the mounting hardware without putting any added stress on the threads in the block. With the bolt not turning you are able to get a much stronger pull without stripping the block. This could probably be used on any stud hole on the motor however you shouldn't have to overtighten a carb or exhaust.
