Stripped Thread Repair: How To Install Thread Inserts

Added by AutomotiveUploads
While doing the final repairs on my T-5 Transmission I needed to do some thread repair. Because of that, I decided to make this quick video on how to repair threads with thread inserts. I use a Heilicoil in this video, but this information will apply to most thread insert repair kits.
