Helicoil Question

Postby jasondepinto » Tue Apr 14, 2020 12:38 am

Hello all. Can I use a helicoil on one of the bolt holes on the base plate of a Touch Control and still get a 35lb torque spec? What size/type of helicoil would I use? Does it take a different size bolt after the insert is in? Has anybody done this on a TC and not had any leaks on the bottom? Thanks in advance for any info!

I don't see why you couldn't put a thread insert or helicoil in it. You can use the same size bolt depending on which one you get, I like to use thread inserts if possible. Here's a list of some on McMaster Carr. Helicoil uses special taps for their system and can get pricey.
