Default How to install a Heli-Coil

How to install a Heli-Coil

The subject is a Toyota 2ZZ engine block
The bolt holes were cracked and then were welded making the holes out of line. The heil-coil will make this a simple fix.

The tools needed will be a Drill motor, the proper sized drill bit for the heli-coil kit, the heli-coil tap, install tool, and the heli-coil insert.


The Heli-coil kit being used is a 8 x1.25mm
The drill bit needed is 21/64



Install the drill bit into the drill motor, and drill the hole out.

Blow out the hole with compressed air

Next take the heil-coil tap


Tap the hole to its oversize.
*NOTE* Heli-Coil taps are an odd size.

On aluminum use a cutting fluid.

Keep the tap straight and square to the work piece.
Blow the hole out again
Now put the insert on the install tool

Now carefully screw the insert into the threads that were just cut, being careful not to apply too much force and skip a thread.



Make sure to counter sink the top of the heil coil by a thread or two



Once the insert is in properly, snap the bottom tab off and blow it out of the hole.


All done and ready to have the part bolted back!

Seriously, if you haven't read through all of his informational posts and don't known about the camera situation, shut up and read. For being the old camera, this one is really good. The words are whats important anyway, silly picture booker.

I had a hexi-coil put in when i failed to extract a stud on my own and made a bad situation worse.







I also found some detonation:






and some more battle scars:

I have read, and its very informative and detailed, makes life easy for everybody who wants to attempt these jobs, and about the camera, I was merely making a joke, chill the **** out.
