Well nut Again

Had an interesting email today from a member who broke a well nut in the airbox. Took it all apart and saw the piece sitting on an intake valve. He got it by putting some bubble gum on a wire and fishing it out. Pretty creative if you ask me, and I'm going to remember that one.

What can be done to prevent that from happening?

Replace them every time you remove it like the manual says. They're pretty cheap anyways.....

Obviously it's the pair of well nuts to the engine side of the air filter that are the critical ones but as Darkside says, just replace them everytime you have the injector covers off. Also make sure you have the screw positively engaged with the threaded insert within the rubber well nut. If it doesn't screw into the insert properly, i.e you have it slightly cross-threaded, the insert can drop off on the inside.

I have described a perfect solution to this problem before so here it is again ; Get yourself new wellnuts and a longer bolt 3/4 of an inch or 1inch long , insert the longer screws thourght carbon or plastec part first , Screw both longer bolts with wellnuts first (just start the thread ) then put some vaseline or something like dishwashing liquid on the rubber so it will slip into the hole lot easier . Pusth both willnuts in and tighten , You 're done, without a worry that you are going to drop anything inside.
