Quick Tip For Tapping Threads
For those of you who don’t have loads of mechanical experience and are still learning like me- here’s a quick trick for tapping threads.
In the case of my Monster- some clear coat got all up into the threads of the tank strap mount holes making replacing the screws a bit sketchy. The last thing I want to do is mangle the threads and have to helicoil something in such a delicate area.
Apply a little bit of drill/tap lube (just a little bit) to your tap before screwing it in so that it picks up all the dust/metal shavings/dirt and also makes it easier to cut through whatever is blocking up your threads (such as rust). Very effective.
