If the hole has already been drilled and tapped for 3/4" it's too big for a 5/8" helicoil.

What you'd need at that point is an insert, I think. Or, just stick with the 3/4" hole.

Trent, thanks for the response. I went with the extended tip bolt instead of the cupped... no special reason other than it was the first one Don mentioned in his post. :D

Matt, for now, restoring the one hole to it's original size is on the back burner. I've got a three day window starting Sunday that I need for painting. I need to get the center pieces for rear wheels, the front wheels, the front axle and the fenders sprayed. Everything is primed, I just need to get the top coat on.

I'll be adding pictures when I get my Cub back on it's feet again. :D

I agree with chipmaker that in most cases helicoils are garbage. I too like threaded inserts especially in higher torque or frequent use areas.
