Heli coil rear wheel

ok,

I got a replacement rear wheel for the one that was taco-ed that came with the bike but someone had stripped the crud out of the bolts trying to get the disk off.

Upon ez-outing them (witch has been a nightmare) it appears that the threads are going to be jacked in one hole. Is it safe to heli-coil in the rear wheel or should I just get another junk yard wheel and start over.

I am tired of messin' with it.

Thanks

heli coils are stronger than the aluminum threads. Most aftermarket auto alum heads come with helicoils installed to save the aluminum...

I'd heli coil it, as said, if done properly it'll actually be stronger.

it's a shouldered bolt it just wouldn't work right,

ANS the one that's jacked it seems that the hole that was drilled trying to get the bolt out is off center and some of the bolt is still in there,

I don't have a drill press so I am out of ideas when I try to drill it out to heli-coil I cant make the drill go were i want it it keeps trying to follow the off center hole,

????

Use a drill press. Lock the wheel down. Drill very slowly with light pressure and plentyy of lube.

Put the old rotor back on it with all the bolts but the one that is bad. Drill through the rotor hole as a guide to keep the bit centered - be sure to keep the drill perpendicular to the face of the wheel. If this doesn't clean up and finish centering the damaged hole, then you can keep going to a larger bit, till you get nearly to the size of the helicoil bit, and finish with it - you can drill the final size - helicoil bit with the rotor in place or removed ( this drilling through the rotor with larger bits will ruin the hole in the old rotor, but will keep the hole located where it needs to be). I'm guessing the old rotor is junk anyway.

In all honesty it shouldn't move on you too much as you're drilling. Its aluminium, take it slow and easy and cut it clean... It'll be alright...

With part of the bolt (high strength steel) still in the hole and the previous attempt at drilling out of the bolt being off center - the drill will DEFINITELY try to walk off center if you don't use a guide to keep it centered.

yeah I know,

I can't do the rotor idea either cause 1, i threw it away and 2 the bolts are shouldered and the hole would be way to big.

I am going to try to get the rest of the bolt out in a little while but i am pretty fed up with it.

Usually all the tension is in the head of a broken bolt. Drill out the center a bit and try to easy out the bolt

If you can't get it out, bring it by and I'll see what we can do with it.

I did, thank you.

I also fix those things for a living and know I can cook a meal at home or go to a chef that can really cook and learn something.

There are several different tools you can use to get a bolt out, different brands etc; if pieces are still in it, and failed to get out once, doesn't mean you can't try something else. Metal can be heated to expand, you can use bolt cutter, screw the remainder bolt through instead of out, punch a creeper punch into the center drilled bolt... there are several different options; never does one ever for removing all bolts that are sheared off.

I was referencing the fact that if the bolt was still in the hole, then the bolt is still in the hole....
