See what you have in the morning

if you can't get it out, search the forum for 'helicoil'....I know it's been posted here before
Helicoil is not a cheap option Pat, unless you already have the tools, the insert tool and the tang tool are about 30 a set for a single size (plus you need a tap and die set of the correct size as well) ... even more if its a multi size kit .... unless reidy has a engineering shop handy to do the work for him, if its that bad then a visit to a breakers may be a better cost solution ..... but he has still to get that bloody hub nut off.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
