    Exhaust problem on 2016 FX CRUISER HO. I NEED ADVICE

    I'm placing the exhaust manifold back and there are bolts that are torquing to proper specs due to block threads being stripped...from previous owner overheating engine so bad.
    I'm getting about 5 ft lbs of torque on those 2 bolts. The other 9 are torqued to specs.. is there anything I can do or apply onto threads or something to allow bolts to be torqued.. what may be the outcome with 2 loose bolts. I circled which bolts are the issue..

    The best bet is to repair the threads with a HeliCoil insert. Fast, easy and stronger. Kit should cost you 30-40 $

    Heli Coil kit is going to be your best bet for sure.

    It`s not hard to do and the kit will do many. Before you know it, you will be a pro at installing one. Should just take about four minutes to do one. This will be a good thing to know further down the road and you will be glad you know how to do it.

    Take care and let us all know how you made out.
