PostSubject: Help with nutserts!!!   Sun 25 Jul 2010, 11:04 pm

Does anybody have any experience with installing EVO crusher corners. I can't get the damn nutsert to not spin. Are nutserts suppose to collapse in on itself or what? I am to the point of just buying bolts and drilling all the way through and forgoing the nutserts.

Quote :
9. Fully thread the long bolt with nut into the nutsert as seen in photo. With wrenches hold the bolt stationary and turn the nut 2 - 3 turns making sure that the nutsert does NOT turn.

nutserts/rivnuts are meant to be installed with a "tool"

they work awsome and are easy to install, with a tool.......

you do not have the tool, you have a bolt and a nut







moral of the story ................get the tool...












i have the superbadass pliars tool for them, but i install alot of them...........pm n2rock, he bought a cheep wedge tool that works awsome, and wasnt too spendy











edit..............your problems are due to the sert "spinning" as it tightens, they are meant to be "pulled" into position

Check this out man. This is the tool poision spider sent me to install the fenders. http://www.poisonspyder.com/assets/install_instructions/PSC-INST-NUTSERT.pdf


When you put the nut cert in the hole just tighten the bolt and it will sqeeze the cert into position. Hope this helps!!


(On edit) I seen you put on there that 2 to 3 turns and it will be good,,,well mine took a lot more that 20 turns. And my holes were all drilled tight.

this is the "tool" that is pissing everyone off. thats the standard "tool" that just about every company sends. its a POS. I tried wrapping it in bacon, but it was still a POS. even the bacon didn't work.

carefully not to overtighten them. they strip pretty easy. some of mine would spin even after I tightened the heck out of them. had to tack weld them.

btw, martij3 plenty-o-pics please. I'm really interested in them. especially the fitment on the body. I may pick up a set. i was going to cheat and get a set of EVO corners and a set of the rear tube fenders from poison spyder's garage sale page ($200) and weld them on. not sure. gotta see if I have any $$ left over after my axle build (if i can ever finish it).

Guess I got lucky with it then. Off course it made me cuss the whole time!

Here's the one I found- not nearly as good as George's, but better than anything else I have found.
