Urgggg Cam Jornal bolt stripping

Recommended Posts

Well Since day one I was very careful to notice the length of the Cam Jornal bolts. From the factory they had the longest where it holds down the top chain cover, 2 center on right side.... In putting it together today this didnt make sense to me as you check the height when you drop them in. Well the exhaust Top right started to strip, confirming it was too short (7ftlbs)

I exchanged it with the long one (according to Ron Ayers diagrams) and it seems OK.

However if this strips next time, what am I in for? Is there a Fix? Can I do it myself without too much trouble?:smash: :thumbsup::devil:

I want to get the Heli Coil stuff to be prepared since I think I only gained 1/4" of good thread

What do I need to do, get? :thumbsup:

Ahh OK I've used these on cars before, can you tell me the thread size? Maybe I can find it in Pep Boys /Kragen style places
