If you can find an Au-Ve-Co dealer, they can get one...

I ordered electrical parts through http://dixied.com/store/ and I had no issue. Just make sure to comment if you want to wait for a back order. They have free shipping over $75.

No idea about quality though.

I bought one of those tools that look like a pop rivet tool....not HF. Did not work well with 1/4-20. I found a bolt, couple of washers and a nut worked much better.

i heard the harbor freight one is pretty much worthless for the evo nutcerts.. but for that price you could give it a try.. i also need a good nutcert tool... sounds like the marson giant threader is the only one that really works good.. I'm temped to try it .

That's weird cuz ORE pointed me in that direction about 10 minutes ago on the phone
probably going to pull the trigger on the Granger one...

fucking sucks to spend 164 on this fucking tool just to use once... but who knows... maybe i have more armor in my future.

X2 A bolt the same size as the nutsert thread, an oversize nut and star/lock washer works great.

Tank,

While Im sure those expensive tools probably work well, spend about 5 dollars on a few items and save yourself a HUGE headache. I recently installed the Poison Spyder Brawler Rockers and it requires you to drill 13 holes in each side of your Jeep. I did one side with the "tool" that PSC sent and was so pissed off I was ready to kill something. It would probably work really well if you were installing aluminum nutserts but with most of the armor kits out there, they are using Grade 8 steel. That little tool they give you does not allow you enough control when you are torqueing the shit out of them to get them to mushroom out. I ended up drilling one and almost had to do another. The next day I spoke with a coworker of mine who has installed many of these nutserts and he hooked me up big time. This is the set up I used and while it looks super cheesy, it worked like a dream. I literally spend half of the time installing the nutserts for the other side of the Jeep, and with confidence that I wasnt going to distort them and end up drilling them out.

Just any old piece of strap aluminum will work, just be sure its long enough to give you enough leverage to hold it in place. Then use a grade 8 bolt with a grade 8 washer for the front side. On the back side, use a lock washer and then thread on the nutsert. The lock washer will bite into the nutsert and keep it from spinning. While I installed all 13 nutserts with the same lock washer it may not be a bad idea to have a few extras handy. Also, I covered the aluminum with painters tape so I protected both my paint and hands.

Like I said, I know this is a Wilbur-Tom set up but for about 5 bucks, you cant go wrong trying it before dropping $100 for one of the other tools out there.

Here is an exploded view:

Here is everything together:

This is what I mean by leverage. I just used a 1/2" ratchet to install the nutserts. Some say you can use a 3/8" impact for the steel nutserts, that scares me.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Hope this helps.

Cheers

Bob

Nice solution Bob

I just hold the oversize nut with a wrench and hit the bolt with an impact, you have to be gentle but it works well.

FWIW Just in case anyone was thinking it, I would not use loctite when bolting to nutserts, as you may cause them to rotate when/if you remove the bolts. Should you ever try and remove a bolt from a nutsert and the nutsert turns because it came loose, use an impact and tighten up the bolt, which will clamp down the nutsert better and allow you to remove the bolt easily.
