    just wanted to know what can i do to fix the problem when the z6 engine belt tensioner bolt hole is stripped? what can i use to rethread it. The bolt hole uses a 14mm bolt but the hole seem to be larger than the bolt itself. What can i buy to fix it? not sure what to buy at sears.

    yeah...we had to do that for my exhaust manifold bolt hole...took a smidge of tweaking cause the coil was too long and the angle wasnt exactly right. Just buy whatever is closest an do what ya can to make it work.
