    Hi all i have a 48cc Zbox I've done about 100km's on it so far and now the T nut which holds the clutch plate has stripped while I was riding. I lost all drive. Has anyone else had a similar problem or know of a good quality replacement for the T nut?

    Most good hardware stores have T-nuts. They usually have little spikes on the backside but can easily be cut or ground down. You will also have to cut little notches on the edge for the retaining screw. I don't happen to know what thread they are though. Shouldn't be too hard to fix.

    OK so i just tried a couple of different hardware store T nut's and none of them fit. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
