    stinger bolts stripped. what to do?

    The 2 bolt holes on the singer that connect the top of the head to the singer are completlely stripped. One has the bolt broken off in it and I tried to easy out it out and it would not come out so I tapped a hole into the existing bolt, but nothing works. I have heard about some screen material to shove in the hole and thread the bolt into that or some have filled the hole with jb weld with the bolt in it, but I want to make sure it holds the massive vibration. Any suggestions?

    Thanks all!

    thats what I was thinking too. Hate to shave a 30 pound piece shipped for 2 stripped out bolts, but thats looking like the way to go.

    I have done the shove the bolt in with JB weld thing. Not specifically on a PWC exhaust bolt but on other applications. Give it a try if you keep your eye on it the worse that will happen is it pops out. Use the regular JB weld I find the JB Kwik stuff to set much softer.

    I would sugest using time-sert. The one that is stripped out will be easy. The other one just drill it out and use that. I have had good luck with those and like them better than Helicoils.

    you can get these rods that are mix of metals adheres to aluminum like a good mig job can be threaded very easy you put bolt in stripped out hole in aluminum,(stainless bolt) then heat the aluminum up to around 850deg. fill hole with rod around bolt, let cool unscrew bolt and grind top level,you have threads now that are as tough as heli coil or steel.the rods are HTs-2000 do a google and read up on them.You can do small jobs with mapp but larger needs acty/oxy rig.aluminum melts at 1300deg these melt at 730deg.you just heat aluminum put scratch coat of ht rod on it,scrub with stainless steel brush ,no flux and finish weld I bought 5 rods for 15.00 on ebay as they cost 100.00 or more a pound JMHO>Marvin here is link http://www.aluminumrepair.com/faqs.asp
