1199 Oil Filter Cap Threads Rung

Discussion in 'Technical Help' started by quik, May 15, 2019.

  1. Hi, I've just rung the threads in one of the holes in the casing that holds the oil filter, What can I do to fix this? Can I get the hole re threaded/tapped again? Will I be able to use the same bolt again as the threads on it don't seem to be damaged.
     
  2. Hi, thanks for the reply, it’s not the filter cap but the engine casing where the bolts that hold the filter cap in place go, I have damaged the threads in one hole
     
  3. Helicoil if there's enough meat on the case for the slightly oversize hole you would need to drill.
