All right, let's test it. Trying to get this thing centered left and right and up and down. I Don't want to drill sideways lubricant. it's very soft.

At a minimum we're going full send. The threads are looking real nice. I Like it. Go ahead and thread this inserts into position.

Thread it down and I think it's locking in. It's not want to go any further.

    What's up with that crack in the housing right above your repair?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kai Thomsen says:

    I just bought a thresd repair kit for this same exact issue, bought a 02 subaru impreza from this lady and she told me the water pump was replaced, she was full of shit and only the bolts got replaced and in the process of removing them it took all the original threads with it

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob Cochran says:

    At least red lock tight that thing. I always do or sometimes i use a light coat of jb weld because i want that helicoil to be part of the hole not just threaded on it

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smonk says:

    Good tip to anyone that values their money. Donโ€™t buy Subaru or ford.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jesuseyez619 says:

    Yeah, this repair would have been way more complicated if it required some sort of quality control lol. Specially aerospace industry -_-

    1) drill using drill block. not free handed.
    2) verify hole diameter using go/no-go using gauge pins
    3) tap hole
    4) verify threads using go/no-go thread gauges.
    3) use locking insert like a Key Inserts
    4) install insert using some sort of adhesive like aero glaze or other epoxy based adhesive.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich's Mobile Auto Repair says:

    Slow the drill bit speed down on steel.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben says:

    Use a bigger bolt they've already ruined any flush seal that was there with the surface like that the bigger bolt will mean there's still enough metal to hold

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neychie says:

    I notice a crack next to the bolt hole that you are fixing, how would you fix that? I am not a mechanic, just saw it and am wondering. Thank you.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jordan says:

    The area around the thread repair is where the water pump metal gasket seals. The surface is jacked and will probably end up leaking.
