My lightweight restoration hit a snag, the drive flange retaining bolt wouldn't torque up. The thread had been stripped at some stage. One option was to take off the hub and replace it, but I was keen to just repair the damage, rather than swap over seals, bearings and the extended wheel studs. So I decided to use a thread repair kit. This isn't a bodge, some applications require the use of thread inserts in order to allow repeated undoing. I ordered a V coil kit from eBay, which arrived in time.
Hello, I've had a very tight Defender TD5 2003 oil sump bolt removed by a garage, as it was wedged in. Tried all sorts, and they had to weld bolts on to get it off. Up shot is that it's leaking, I've taken it back and they have said bring it back, but it's time and fuel bringing it back over. I was looking to get an oversized oil sump bolt to replace it with. Helicoil I've heard mix things, and then when I come to change the oil next time I don't want to faffe about. I've read that the bolt is a M16, 16.5mm 1.5m thread, would the following Sealey set be the right thing to fix it with? Sealey VS617 Oil Drain Plug Thread Repair Set - M17
