Okay so I was just in the garage trying to put on frame sliders , went step by step made sure everything fit, cut the whole correctly . Okay so now I am ready to put in the slider problem is we get about half way ( my bf is stronger so he is doing this) and the bolt just isn't going in all the way. So we take the slider out and decided to put the engine bolt back in as we are both tired . Now he is putting the original bolt back in and he is pushing it at over 100 lbs of torque and that bitch ain't going in. It starts making this really bad noise he say's that means if we push it the bolt will snap and that is bad. At this point the bolt is almost in but not quite . WTF ?? it came out okay ? What do I do now ??? anyone else have probs ??

chances are is that you may have stripped the bolt or worse...stripped the threads on the bolt hole.

100ftlbs or more of pressure is too much to tighten that bolt.

does he know what thread size/pattern and type of bolt? a metric size bolt will not fit in a standard size hole and vice versa.

look in and inspect the threads on the bolt hole.

I ate about half a thread on the right side when doing mine, really made me mad. I just threaded it through the back side of the hole to clean it back up.

By the way, the torque spec for those bolts is like 45 ft/lbs. Your screwing them into an aluminum block. If you go a pound over 45 you're taking the chance of stripping out the threads in your engine block, which would be really really bad.

Do yourself a favor and go out and buy a tap and die metric set and run the bolt through the die and clean it up, then try again. If you can easily get to the threads, run a tap through it as well, just make sure you get the correct pitch on the tap and die set.

DONE ! and worked perfectly , when we took out the original bolt there was a hell of alot of gunk left behind caked in the threads , never would have thought there would be that much crap so I never thought to look. Anyway cleaned it all out and it is good , now we have the tools if the other side is the same prob so all is well. Thanks for all the input guys ! I am still learning here
