There is too much friction between the bolt thread and the nutsert thread and not enough friction holding the nutsert in. Some grease on the thread and a nordlock washer up against the nutsert helped but a proper tool would have been better. Yes, it was so much easier putting the rear M8 bolts in first. I did it the other way around before and it was a pain getting the M8s to catch.
I'm glad to hear the knee is feeling better!
I'm also glad to hear you got the nutserts installed. It sounds like you found a very clever way. I bet you would be a good guy to have around if something broke down in the bush!
