Today, in my "lucky day" I check head nuts and 1 from them start to turn without resistance. 3 of nuts didn't move to much and this lucky one had very little resistance and moves out. I don't know even what to think, I don't feel guilty at all. I strip off Engine Cylinder (1st time), remove it and everything is clear... screw-thread is removed and is on stud. Engine is 3 months old now, low mileage, serviced proper, have changed mounting studs on A2 Steel, worked fine with a little "metal sound" (from time to time). I really didn't use to much power and the tubular wrench is not the best.

What can I say... Please help!!!

What can I use to repair it?

Here is idea to use copper pipe (fi8 / fi5) with screw-thread in on M6 and out M8-9 and glue it.

I could try to glue it by:

Heat resistant to 1300ºC.

Better to glue it (THERMOSTEEL HIGH TEMPERTURE) or drill and replace (recoil-thread-repair-kit)?

That guy which sell recoil-thread-repair-kit have on auction:
WE'VE ALL HAD THAT MOMENT WHEN THE BOLT STRIPS OUT...WHICH IS NORMALLY FOLLOWED BY A SPATE OF SPANNER THROWING,SWEARING..AND IN EXTREME CASES TEARS ( LOL )
I really feel like that :(

Looks like it's M8 x1.00 rod

same thing occurred on an early dax of mine...one stud was vibrating out from below, whenever i re-tightened it was only pulling it out more.

good luck, & keep us posted.

What did you do about it augidog? Seems one of mine is also stripped but not too bad. All are super tight except for one.
