    Mr Watson, The two holes were the studs go on my D60 front have stripped out(the ones in the housing). I have heard you have a fix for this and was wondering what it was. IF you don't and I heard this eroneously then just tell me to bug off. Thanks,

    ryan

    Get you some heli coils or you could possibly drill and tap it larger ....
    Ie , No ORD does not make a fix for that .

    If ORD can't set you up then PM me and I can. You will need to have a couple things go your way for a step-stud repair:

    1. The existing factory holes need to be positioned in the center section so that there's enough material to tap a 3/4-10 hole 1" deep. I have seen diffs where there was plenty of room for a step-stud and others the tap would break out the side.

    2. You need to have the ability to tap a 3/4-10 hole ...ie...drill,tap,drill press and a small amount of machining ability.

    3. You need to know how thick your front spring pack is and if your going to use a Zero rate to determine overall stud length.



    Sorry for the high-jack on the ORD sub-page but desertrat67 has been trying to cure this problem for awhile now and I have fixed some locally like this.

    Jeff

    thanks for the reply. I will be getting a hold of you as soon as I get my burb home and can measure the spring pack thickness. i will also have a look at the housing to see if it is thin in that area or not.
