Attaching the Insert

 

Put a flat washer on top of the chassis hole where the insert goes, then put a 4-40 bolt through the washer and hole. Make sure your bolt protrudes from the chassis at least 1/8" so you engage lots of threads in the insert when you begin to pull hard.

Thread the bolt into the insert, then tighten the bolt from the top. It will pull the insert into the chassis, and you can guide the hex into it's spot with a pair of pliers. This works really well on the 4 transmission inserts.

This method is less likely to crack the chassis or damage the insert than with a hammer.
