    Oiler mod ??

    Im getting ready to do the oiler mod but it looks like the tap m10 is a little to big for the hole. It is just me or is actually to big? Do I have to drill the hole bigger?

    Don't drill it! The hole is the right size...... just tap a few turns at a time, then remove tap.... continue until your deep enough.

    M10x1.5 tap requires a 8.5mm drill bit. The two (only) I have done I just drilled the hole to make the tapping easy. Take it real easy.

    The most important thing when doing this is to make 100% sure there is no swarf or filings left behind.

    I had to drill mine out. I had bought the tap and drill set from Lowes and the bit would not fit in the existing hole. Unless you guys know something I don't, I don't see how you can successfully tap the existing hole without drilling

    You can easily tap it without having to drill the hole, make sure no matter how you do it to use tapping oil or even regular motor oil on the threads of the tap. Do not tap it dry, you can damage the threads as you cut them.

    Just for giggles I measured the hole and the correct bit for the tap with a set of calipers.

    The stock hole comes up .302" and the bit is .335"
    or
    7.69mm and 8.5mm

    Just sayin

    The hole is NOT the right size for a 10mm tap; it is too small. Although aluminum is soft, and you might be able to force it to use the smaller hole, it is not advisable. There are two reasons, one is you could break the tap, the other is that the end resulting threads could have sharp peaks that might break off when you install the hollow screw, leaving sharp bits of aluminum floating around.

    Keep in mind that there are lots of taps out there, no two guys are going to use the same tap. Just because you might be able to use the tap you have to get it to work doesn't mean the next guy will. The tap I use (high quality US made one from an industrial supply house) won't start in the small hole. I had to drill it out with the proper tap drill first.
