Sump plug....stripped, bugger, thank god for this.
Permalink  
 


Tried to remove original sump plug.

Would not budge. And ended up stripping the nut.

Thank god for this little kit. Have had it for years, this is only the second time i have used it.

Well worth the money. Hate to think what i would have had to do, without this.

Now i just spend a $10 on a new sump plug. I wonder why it was on so tight in the first place.

Z.

It paid for itself today!!! :)

I just stripped the thread on the tank retainer bit. I didn't even tighten it that much, it must have been weak already. Luckily I can still slide the tank under it so even though it's stuck in place it doesn't really matter. I might eventually try and get the bolt out and attach a longer bolt with a nut on the other side. Stripping threads is about the most annoying thing in vehicle repair.

Not sure what happens to the sump plugs, I have had two engines come here that I had to heat the plugs so much to get them out, it was lucky I didn't melt it!

Petenz, that looks like a very comprehesive bit of kit.
I think i paid about $30-$50 delivered (ebay buy). I remember thinking bloody lot of money to remove one stripped nut. *originally*
Thankfully, it saved my bacon yesterday.
Initially i could not find it in shed, and thought i had lost it. Made me think now what?, drill it out??? My skill level would have messed it right up.
Honestly could not beileve how tight it was, i had sprayed with wd40 night before, couple of gentle taps with hammer to try and loosen it up.
Then all hell broke loose, spanner, socket, nothing work, or would even loosen it.
i think it's worth having something like this for *those* moments. :)
Glad to hear i'm not the only one.

You know something is tight, when the bike moves when trying to unscrew something!!!
