Re: bout to panic, please help
I have don this several times on crossed plug threads, grease up the tap with some reel heavy grease and start the tap into the hole 2-3 turns and remove, clean the tap and regrease, continue till yer all the way thru.. worked for me..
now thats a good idea, I probably wouldnt have thought to pull and clean each time. wouuld it be possible to just turn the tool enough to repair the damaged threads at top of hole? without having to go to bottom with it? That method would cut down the amount of metal fleks f can do it that way. the damage is at the very top. i got nowhere near threading it in. i really dont wanna hafta drop engine and all that if i can help it. but anyways thanks for the tip. I'm gonna try it your way when tool get here.
