    Well i have no thread left where the bolts that hold the dog bone mount (bottom gear box mount) to the gear box go. So i need to get a heli coil set off ebay to put a thread into the bottom of the gear box so i can drive the car again. Anyone know what size i need to get?

    Thanks

    Just checked ETKA and it says the size is M10X70X32. So bolt size is M10, unsure on the following numbers(guessing 70 is overall length of bolt and 32is length of thread section of bolt)

    If you can i would try and get a Wurth Time-Sert kit over Helicoils. Time-serts are far superior in my opinion.
