Going to have to helicoil a couple holes on the trans. Bottom hole for the Transfer case and 1 hole for the trans mount. What's the size and pitch for these? I would like to have them ready for when I get it apart. Thanks
Reason being? Transfer case is rigged pretty good at the moment. Long bolt through with a nut on the stripped side. Seems pretty legit. Transmission hole has about a 1/4" of thread left at the bottom. I'm open to suggestions. Never used anything but helicoils. Haven't used them in about 18 years too haha. Not many stripped bolts and threads around these parts, expecially if I'm doing the wrenching. Thanks
Just some people's preference. They are solid inserts, not a coil.
If I recall correctly, the lower transfer case bolt location is a bit shallow and may not use a complete coil (or it is very close in dimension). So watch for that possibility.
I used helicoils in the trans mount location and it worked great. May have actually needed two there for the depth. No real need for a timesert there. Depth wise it may be too deep for a standard timesert length, though I have not used a 12mm timesert ever.
Confirmed. Trans mount bolts are m12x1.25
Also discovered the "4th" trans bolt was broken inside the trans. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif So I drilled it out and I'm gonna try to use a m10x1.25 instead of the factory smaller bolt. Side note, block and trans has threads for that "4th" bolt. WTF?
