Sell it to me...I'll drill it out and then helicoil it.


It isn't like you're talking about a manifold bolt or something...Or you could try starting with a small drill bit and stepping it up one size at a time until you can just pretty much scrape out the left overs...then chase the threads with a tap and clean them up.

I wouldn't hesitate to helicoil this either since it isn't a crazy torque on the bolt...I wouldn't helicoil a bolt holding the heads on.

I just tapped it one size larger. From 5/16ths to 3/8ths.

The offending bolt:


First time I've ever tapped anything...scary...but...TADA!






It threads all the way in to the bottom of the cut I made with just my fingers, nice and smooth. I just made sure to take my time, every step forward I took, I took a step back, and just went slooooow.

I just need to bore out the hole in the housing so i can fit the new fatter bolt through it...and pick up a replacement for the other bolt...i dont trust those old ones anymore, haha.

Good job, you tapped it correctly if you kept backing it out to clean the threads...

Otherwise the shavings can muck up your fresh threads before you even get a bolt in there.

Looks good Marn, glad to see you got it! Now you have to drill and tap the other side to match!

You got a nice CB in there, Marn. I have the same one in my Jeep. The PA function is fun

Update:

Been fiddling with the carb. It failed emissions badly, so I'm working on that and learning. Hooked up my PCV valve, turned down the idle, leaned out the mixture, blah blah blah.

There are so many little things this truck needs, weather stripping, window channels, door locks...that kinda stuff. All in good time I suppose. I've got a rattling or knocking sound coming from the motor though, so thats taking priority. She runs fine, and it seems to be a rather intermittent noise, so...hopefully I can figure it out.

Anyway, here are a few more pics:

Antenna


Installed a new Pro-Flow that my buddy had sitting in his garage (yes, its backwards)


And, picked up a crapy automotive multimeter for super cheap...it'll get the job done.

You know Marn, you should just find some old geezers or old time guys that know carbs pretty well. Anyone that used to be a mechanic would be a good person to ask about a carb. I know my Dad was a diesel mechanic, but still knows his way around a carb a little bit. Ask them to help you out a little bit or show you some of the stuff. Learn how it works.

If you ever find yourself a couple hours down the I-15 let me know, and depending where you're at we can work something out.
