  • You made a mistake installing the helicoil. Always leave it at least 1/2 a turn below the surface. It is stronger and will not interfere with gasket sealing .

  • ALWAYS use loctite when putting in Helicoil's. That way, they don't move about or go in any further when you take the screw/bolt in and out. And always use stainless ones so they don't rust or corrode.

  • Old school method of getting off an oil filter. Take a large screwdriver and drive it through the filter an inch or two from the end (missing the center of course) - gives lots of leverage. Downside is that it is a bit messy. Upside is a nice bit of destruction on the stubborn filter makes you feel better.

  • I teach my apprenticeship students. If you can't get a torque wrench into position directly or with a crowfoot adapter. Place torque wrench drive in vice practise a few times how much your preload should feel. Hold wrench at same length as torque wrench handle and recreate the feel of 20 foot pounds or 31 nM. Whatever you are gunning for.

  • And by the way: cutting your own gaskets is a pain in the ***. I've tried. All the little screw holes on a carb gasket. Try the cheap chinese aftermarket ones, available for almost every brand. Only maybe 5 out of ten will fit well, but hey. AND thank you so much for the JIS part. That really changed everything. I've been insulting every tool and wall in my garage for years for that absurdly tightened screws (I literally screwed half of them beyond recognition) till I saw your video for the first time and ordered a Vessel. Now I'm back at thinking that Japanese engineers are ingenious. I got two now.

  • Hey there, another great video. Just one thought of criticism (correct me if I'm wrong): While I saw that luggage scale method for torque elsewhere, there's a big problem: As you rightly stated: Torque is a FORCE and a distance. But force, my weird imperial friends, is measured in lbf (pound force), not in lbs, as you abbreviated it, which on the other hand is a unit of MASS, not force. And mass is related to gravity (though some Trumpians might tell you otherwise), Mother Earth is pulling with a constant acceleration (9.81m/s² or 32ft/s²). The question now is: Can you pull your wrench with that constant acceleration? Otherwise your formula is wrong. The luggage scale you use is indeed a force meter (or dynamometer), but one that has been calibrated to average gravitational acceleration to show the right weight. Or stated the other way around: if you want lbf and lbs to be the same, as Ryan did, you must pull on your wrench with constant 32ft/s² likewise your luggage would pull on the scale when it's hanging down, i.e. pulled by gravity. Here's an example of what that means (switching to the dark side (the metric system) now): The nut that holds the sprocket on my bike is tightened with 100Nm (74lbf*ft). Let's say the wrench is 0.4m long. If I'm able to pull the wrench with 9.81m/s², the scale must show about 25kg (100Nm=xN*0.4m, so x=250N, as F=m*a (N=kg*m/s²) m=F/a which is 250N divided by 9.81m/s² =circa 25kg). BUT if I pull slower, let's say half the acceleration, the equation comes to: 250N divided by 5m/s² = 50kg ! So, if I can't determine the acceleration that I'm pulling with, I can't know the weight that needs to show on the display. If there's no torque wrench around, I'd rather stick to (common) sense and thighten it carefully by hand.

  • I'd like to think that when I'm using my own torque wrench I'm pretty damn good at telling torque. Was putting my rear wheel back on(this Tuesday), torque to 85Nm. Stop myself thinking "that's 85". Check the torque wrench, yep it's set right at 84+1. Turn it down to 80 and try the nut and sure enough an immediate click. Back up to 85, it moves a few degrees and *click*.

  • u only need a in/lb torque wrench for bikes. dont be so cheap- a fish scale. buy good tools as u need them and you'll always have them next time. dont forget the torque formula., for an extension on the socket. any extension to socket wrench increases the torque at the end of it, and you'll overtorque stuff if you dont apply the torque formula.

  • Heli coils are for stripping out even bigger holes. My BMW tech promised the cylinder studs would suck the Heli coil out with the heat and cool cycles of an air cooled engine. The Time Machine Co. has come to the rescue with the Timesert. This is like a bolt with threads cut inside. These can be ordered in different lengths(which provided more purchase to the aluminum case than the stud). Also they make a Bigsert to repair the crater that Heli coils leave when they tare out. They also have a top hat on the insert to prevent the insert from threading in too far! I have a Timesert on left cylinder and a Bigsert on the right. After several years no problems. Its Timesheets all the way! Check out the Time Machine Co. website for more info.
