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.
Hey Bob,

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!

Cheers,
Bill
