The bike is in a very "rural" area in the south central Philippines so no Graingers or anything else around the corner. Whatever the fix it needs to be strong and done with normal shop tools (ie no machines)
Thanks, Scott
You could certainly drill and tap the stripped hole for a Helicoil using a hand drill. Could you not get a Helicoil thread repair kit mailed to you?
My further investigation of the Loctite and Permatex liquid thread repair revealed that on a 6mm bolt it is only capable of 23in/lbs. Hardly worth doing in my opinion.
