Question for Canuck750
« on: June 12, 2021, 07:34:18 AM »


Awesome LM1 build - I used your thread to rebuild mine from an unregistered pile of bits. A thousand thank yous.

Helicoiling rear drive box without dismantling it - I have a question:

What did you do about the tang on the helicoil used to turn it in with the helicoil tool? Did you wind it in tang end first and leave it on? Or tang end last and some how pull it off from the outside?

Many thanks

Simon

Hi Simon, great looking bike you have there

You can leave the tang in place at the base of the helicoil if you canít get inside the casting to remove a snapped of tang

Agreed, a much better choice than helicoils, in the past year I have pretty much switched to taped inserts, both carbon and stainless steel with the vertical tabs that are struck through the threads once the insert is fully set.
