grande oil injector bolt stripped

howdy,

My grande's oil injector has two bolts on it and the hole that the bottom bolt goes in to has stripped treads. What i want to know is, is it ok to retap the treads in their? or does this hole go into the engine compartment?

thanks

The bolt hole shouldn't go into the engine. Remove the oil pump and check the remaining non-stripped bolt hole to see it goes through.

Do you have any pics of your Grande?

I sold a cherry one to a fellow in Detroit a few years ago (ee pic). It only had about 300 miles on it. It was one of a matching pair of his and her Grandes that was previously owned by a Vespa dealer.

Where did you get yours?

I sold one to a fellow in the Detroit area and another out here in the San Jose, Ca area.

I got mine off a drunk guy for 20$. no kidding
