ianboag Posted November 5, 2008 Share Posted November 5, 2008 My J200 - being a few years old - has the fairings and covers and things held together with PK screws. Whenever I take off a cover for maintenance or inspection or whatever I end up putting bigger screws into some of the holes because they have grown a little on me. This problem can't be unique to me as Jabiru now uses some kind of self-tapping threaded inserts instead of PK screws. I'm told they cost about $4 each which seems a tad steep. Does anyone know what they are called in the non-aviation world and/or where they can be obtained? Alternatively can anyone comment on the suitability of Rivnuts (or any other sort of fastener) for this job? Captive nuts would probably work but seem a bit over the top.
