Skid change was almost done. New sliders in and bam couldn't get the hyfax screws back in. Both stripped stuck halfway in and likely one is cross threaded.

2 minute job ruined the project AGAIN

Tap and dye? Tool and dye? No idea about any of that stuff

Use a vice grip to thread the bolts back out.

Used hacksaw to convert to flat head screws then I hacksawed the troublesome one a bit shorter so it goes into the good thread. Blue locktited. Fingers crossed!

I find only Snap-On screwdrivers give me confidence with those.


Common sense is worth a penny and we are billions in debt.

Snap-on? The brand or do they actually grip the screw

Just order up new bolts and nuts. You can replace them with skid under sled.

I don’t have a set in front of me and can’t remember off hand, but if they have a little dot on them somewhere they’re actually a Japanese Phillip which is why anything but a very nice #2 tends to strip them. Very hand to own one if you work on power sports stuff. Carbs ect..

That is a JIS screwdriver. (Japanese Industry Standard). I have some Hondas with them.

Yup JIS screwdrivers best "phillips" screwdrivers ever.. Could never understand why I kept stripping phillips screws on my 92' GSX-1100F until someone told me to buy JIS screwdriver.. They work on regular phillips better too.

Just because someone makes their sled loud doesn't mean trails are closing. I can make my sled as loud as i want to. I'm half tempted to run the loudest set of pipes I can just to irritate people

Yep, never even knew they existed until I started working for a Japanese cnc machine tool manufacturer. JIS is absolutely different than Phillips and should not be thought of interchangeably.

To the OP; stop now and get new hardware, don’t LocTite & hope.

On my old RV the heads are smaller, I found that by using a clamp to push the slider down the screw wasn't what was pulling it in so there is much less tension on it. put the screw in loose to hold it in position, clamp it, then tighten down, release the clamp and the slider is really locked in....I also use a drop of blue Loctite, the nylon lock nut loses grip after a few changes...I use this method now on my 2020 and its much easier when you aren't fighting the grip of the slider on the screw....

Now you know why some of us old fellows take 5 minutes to do a 2 minute job!

 

I have lived a life with ADHD...modern lingo for being hyper. My wife always says to me; "Why are you so patient when it comes to mechanics but not anything else?" My answer back; "Because over the years I've learned that it's the only way to do it...for me anyway. I'm not smart enough to do it fast!" :rolleyes:
