My XChallenge has a plastic tank. On top is a vent cap that is bolted to the tank with course SS screws, probably self tapping. Some of the threads in the tank are stripped. The threaded tank holes are blind holes. Does the Loctite form a thread have any chance of working in this application?

The reason I am asking is the question came up on KLRForum where I spend a lot of time and I remembered reading about Loctite thread repair on this forum. I will report back with your response.

I think he is saying without saying, know what I am saying? I have the same problem, '08 KLR650 right front valve cover bolt stripped. Found many of the same bolt holes stripped in my quest on many multiples of sights It is a special flange head bolt so using a longer bolt is not feasible. 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.

Team-
I've been completely out of pocket @ Philmont for the last 2 wks and just now got back to civilization.

That Stripped thread repair kit isn't the thing to ise on stripped metal inserts in a plastic tank.

I'd use a suitable plastic adhesive in the stripped out hole, press the metal insert back in place, apply a very thin fulm of grease/release on the male threads, thread the fastener in the insert.

Then give the fastener an eighth or quarter turn every 5 minutes until the adhesive hardens a bit.

See post #604.

Working off of my B berry I forgot to mention you'd have to clean out the stripped out hole, let evaporate, dispense a dab of resin into the hole, press in the metal insert, then do the other things I suggested.

What's Dirty have to say...

I didn't read the whole thread, too lazy.
I have used regular J-B on engine side covers, no problem. Is there anything you can recommend for my on road repair kit that will seal a damaged engine cover that doesn't take 24 + hours to set?
Thanks Dirty

Metal Magic Steel Stick pn. 98853. I travel with half a stick and a few extra pairs of purple rubber gloves.

This stuff also kept my buddies boat from sinking at the mouth of the MS river years back when he ran it up on a rock jetty and holed it so bad the bilge pump couldn't keep up.

If you haven't already guessed it-I'mma believer.

i have loose threads on a shock reservoir schrader valve - the thread clearance of the shrader external threads to the reservoir body is terrible - i tried teflon tape and it leaks down over time... you have a thread sealant that might work for loose fit threads? 577 maybe?

i have motor mount bolts that loosen overtime. i was hoping to find a mechanical lock that works, but nothing seems to work..so maybe a chemical product will work... i have tried nord-lock and they still loosen overtime. i tried blue loctite, safety wire, double jam nut, nylock, split lock washers, and toothed lock washer (din 6797) and they still loosen. i have to retorque every 8 hours or so. is there a anti-vibration product that works? i really do not want to use red loctite, as i can't torque check them at all ...not like i need to - you can feel/hear when they loosen up and prevailing torque goes way down... ... and a couple times a year i pull the motor...it's a small 2 stroke, it doesn't feel like it vibes that much, but it is constantly loosening the mounts....

577, 567PST, 565, or 545 all would be just fine to use on this application.

We're dealing with small parts, so apply the product one thread back from the tip end of the threads on the schraeder valve, 360 degrees, smear it into the threads so that the thread trough if full and you see the crown of the threads on the schraeder valve so we don't run the risk of getting thread sealant into the shock internals.

Let it sit overnight and you'll be Ace!

Dirty

all about the same price (567pst is a little more..) - so which one is best/whats the main differences?

A very good Loctite product that sticks things where most other things fail, is 480. A form of glue thats used to stick the studs into tyres fitted to ice race cars. Have succeeded in sticking rubber to plastic with it, and it seems to work on pretty much anything.
