Re: Fix it helicoils

I would call a helicoil a "threaded bushing".

"bonnet", "accumalater", "crank pedal thread", "derailleur hanger"???? If Y'All are gonna post about car repair speak English:)

Here's a video of me replacing a brake light bulb.

Re: Fix it helicoils

If you use helicoils (threaded bushing) I would suggest Locktit 263 color is red smile

Now if you have a litle hole under or on side of the oil pan I suggest Locktite super metal or JB weld !!  Hope this help the puzt that was asking us for solutions !  smile

Also good for frost plugs ect...

Re: Fix it helicoils

We use helicoils in the army, they are a temporary fix to a critical problem.

Re: Fix it helicoils

Hey I didn't say they don't work, they are considered temporary repairs. They are annotated on maintenance records for depot level reclamation and salvage determination.  I hope I don't need them but they are the best thing to tap and die work which don't apply to spark plugs application.

Dude, I'm not knocking them but they are a form of "nigger rigging" what could be a major F-up.

Re: Fix it helicoils

They have a larger surface area so they should be more secure then the original bolt.

Re: Fix it helicoils

I have a question for Y'All Euro's. Your no doubt familiar with the term "Geri-rigged". Is that term a compliment or a insult?

Here in the U.S. we say "nigger-rigged". Or as the more PC SJW's prefer "Afro-engineered". Either way, it's not complimentary. I started thinking of this while "fixin" my battery cables. My connectors were bad and I had to replace them, but the ground wire was about 10mm short. So rather than replace them I used a couple of "wire-stretchers". These are of the "bolt-on" variety as opposed to the crimp-on kind.

Re: Fix it helicoils

First time I hear this term. But if you thought abot that during a repair of previously made "poor engineering solution" I assume that the term is pretty much pejorative and meaning that the previous engineering was kinda "noobish". I dont know what it has to do with race though, maybe it's a local tradition in some places lol

Anyways, we ex-Soviets sometimes call poor engineering as "kolkhoz", meaning that a solution was a hillbilly like repair, with innappropriate tools used or heavily lacking in style or quality.

P.S. Strange that you're missing the connector caps on the battery contacts.  I mean the plastic lids which cover them from grease sludge and moist. One's usually red the other's black.

That's what MY repair is. Is that pronounced "coal-cause", I cant wait to say "we'll just coal cause that MF'er", LOL. The factory job was done properly, as cheap as possible so you'll bring it to them for repair. I'm an electrician by trade so I save wire & "kearneys". (kearneys are worth their weight in gold) I could have used a "wire twist lock", what we call "B-Caps" in trade lingo, but their not as good as a kearney.

I was hopeing for some German input. I thought "jerry-rigged" came from WWII on how the german's adopted stuff like panals on the side of their tanks. And I thought DD might admire on my connectors.

In France that's called «système D» and it's not just about mechanics. A widespread example of système D during the occupation:

It was no longer possible to buy stockings because of rationing. Some women were drawing seams on the back of their legs. Decency is safe.

Re: Fix it helicoils

Jerry-rigged is a temporary repair using what you have at hand so that the vehicle can at least get you home.  It comes from the nautical term jury-rig when sailors would tie together pieces of a broken mast to reach the nearest port. Yes, the urban dictionary is correct.
