    Need venturi help

    The north and south holes on my venturi (the holes where the steering nozzle on my 2006 GTX 185 HP bolts on to) have stripped out. Is there anyone on the forum that can weld/fill the holes and retap them the same size thread? Any help and or info will be greatly appreciated. Will gladly pay a green hulk member to repair this and I will pay shipping both ways. Thanks--Ray

    best fix is to have the holes Heli-coiled. They tape the hole bigger and then insert the coil fixing the stripped hole. I have had this done on my gsx exhaust and it held just fine.

    How did they strip out?? That would be another thing to look at.

    the best way of repairing your venturi is to buy a helicoil kit, that will put new stainless steel threads in the venturi . pwgx beat me to it, great minds think alike
