minisport front wheel hub

Postby leepot » Wed 3rd Aug 2022, 05:47pm

Hiya everyone, I have a question, I'm currently in the middle of a front end rebuild. Its taking hold of me and I'm uncovering more jobs to tackle.

The question I have at the moment is this............I have a pair of minisport light weight alloy front hubs that have heli coils in them where the caliper bolts on.

Unfortunately when i was stripping them down to refurb, i found the driver side was manky as :censored: :censored: and the heli coil came out with the bolt. I know the bolt that goes in is a 3/8", however the heli coil kits that i can find are all metric.

I am guessing that i can re heli coil with an M10 and then just use an M10 bolt to re fit the caliper back to the hub.

will this work or am i barking up the wrong tree?
