So I the threads in one of my YORKS are no good so I used a helicoil kit to fix them. But when I went to screw the bolts in they just pulled the coil out. I can't figure out if I did something wrong or what. It does hold but not very well. I always thought helicoils were suposed to hold real well. Maybe not. Anyone know if this is normal or if perhaps I have done something wrong?

Over the years I have done quite a few, with very little problems. I have just made sure that I used the drill bit and tap that comes with the kit. I would think your local bolt shop would be able to help you most. I was wondering if it just pull out and left the new threads in or did it pull the new thread out. Did the new bolt bottom out? It is kind of like putting your hand in between the fence to get an apple and when you try an get it out it won't come because the fist is too big. Once you screw the bolt in everything should squeeze up tight.
