Yes you can helicoil it. Talked to my friend that works at the machine shop and he talked to his boss and he said that is what they would do. There the #1 machine shop in the area so they know what there talking about.

I have had to do it several times. Just be sure to drill straight and cover everything up so no metal gets where you don't want it. Make sure the helicoil is below the mating surface or it won't torque down right.

okay thanks for the help, i'll drill it on a drill press. should be back in business in no time.

i'd really like to hit up that mounds run july 21st & 22nd trying to get my brother to go with me.

i'm a little worried i won't make it through everything being on 33"s and no locker.

i'll bring a strap.

My cam spec:
Hi-Torque RV performance camshaft -257/268 advertised duration, 214/224 @ .050 lobe lift, 416/430" gross valve lift, 110 centerline -10 to 20 extra HP in the 1300 to 4800 rpm range

If you want to get a comp cam id get the next size up. That one is the 252s, id get the 260s cam.

Id get this cam. Almost the same as mine and it is cheaper then the crane cam.

To bad about the stock cam, cuz i could have giving you the stock cam i had. Have like 3 of them. Good reason to get a nice cam though:tonka:

Youll be fine at mounds, you dont really need to worry about it. Jared had his jeep out there with 32 AT's and no lockers and actully went alot of places.

There if your truck is big its just the less you have to worry about getting stuck or a hole being to deep. It will probly be dry and shallow out there that time in the year any way unless it rains alot before hand.

Thats how i wheel. Watch some one else do it first.

Thats the bad part about having the big truck in the group, is all your friends want you to go first.

Ill show you the ropes there. You dont need to worry about it, ull have fun.

I was at thr mounds on the 4th and went a lot of places in a stock yota with 31" AT's. Stay out of the big ruts and go for it. It was real greasy in the areas with clay and the at's would not clear so steering was a bit rough at times. In the sandy areas and back in some of the tight trails it went anywhere I pointed it. I was there a couple weeks ago when it was real dry and went everywhere my buddys in there jeeps went except for a few big ruts. I also went places thet couldn't go. I drove thru one dry hole that my buddy tipped his cj5 on 36's in and we had to use 2 winches and a couple people as counterbalnces to get him out.
