Thread: Stripped threads on metering plate screw hole 4175.

  1. #1

    Default Stripped threads on metering plate screw hole 4175.

    Well (please see pics), thought I was good on this little project, but on the metering plate (no block) I encountered a hole with stripped threads. This is, when looking straight at it, the one on the right-most wing of the plate, the rest seem to be fine. I read that the only threads that could be fixed with HeliCoil was base plate holes and float bowl holes. Any ideas here on what I can do much appreciated. I guess the other question, will it run poorly with that screw not being tight? Thanks.

    Thanks Gary, no problems? So guess that wasn't true about only float bowls and base plates being repairable? I also guess, that since you know exactly what size that screw is that you know exactly what you're talking about. Thanks much.
