help with thread tap
ok... so I have an m10x1mm thread that needs an insert or helicoil.
it is stripped and all I can seem to find is metric fine thread helicoils at 1.25mm.
anyone have any ideas on where to get this done? From a dollar perspective,I think I would rather pay a shop or someone to do this vs buying a kit to repair it myself.
it is on an aluminium clutch slave cylinder banjo bolt hole.
thanks for any info!!!
You could go to a 10 x 1.25 heli coil and use another banjo bolt. 10 x 1 is rare but a shop like imperial may have the kit. Upon thinking further, there will be shops with that size as its the size for a 10mm spark plug.

I have a M10 X 1.0 kit sitting in my garage. Lots of coils left too. I bought it for the same situation as yours, stripped clutch banjo bolt. Ducati?
I'll PM you with contact info.
Thank for the suggestion and offer guys...
Ended up getting a kit online... One Can never have enough tools...
