Do you mean the threads are stripped on the regulator? If that is your problem, you need to get a replacement regulator.

My daisy 5501 has a problem by the clip the co2 adjuster is stripped any solutions

Is your bolt stripped or is the actual threaded part in the handle stripped. The bolt can be replaced from Daisy or in a pinch you can use a standard bolt to put pressure on the cylinder. If the threaded part in the handle is stripped that is a little more of an issue. If it is stripped I think you have to options:
1 Find a tap for the threads on the bolt and run it through the existing threads and see if you can get it cleaned out and working.
2 Next option would be to drill it out to the next thread size and re tap it and then use a new bolt to secure the cylinder.
I hope this helps.

The quick change knob just spins. I can't remove knob. I can't remove blade

Hi Eric:
What is this machine?
It's in the Air and Gas Compressor section, and refers to a blade.
- When knobs "just turn there are several possibles.
1) Knob no longer attached to shaft
2) Anchor nut turning with shaft
3) Threads stripped at anchor nut.
"Shot in the dark" answer that sometimes will herl with (2).............
IMPACT will often loosen something that's giving you grief.
If possible, wrap a rag around the knob to protect it, then attach vice grips, and SHARPLY tap the end of the vice grip handle with a hammer.

Can a non fouler replace heilcoil for temporary fix ? Or can I use thread insert instead of heilcoil and don't know what size 14mm or 18 mm 2001 toyota camry 4 cylinder thread is stripped trying to repair...

If the thread is stripped you wont be able to get a good seal even with a non fouler or a threaded insert. They still need something to get a grip on. The thread size is 14mm. If you try to tap it bigger or use an insert you risk cracking the head. If you need a quick fix to get down the road you can JB weld the spark plug back in. This won't last long since JB weld dissolves in gas but it could get you by for up to a day. JB weld is hard to get off after but once again, soak it in gas to help clean it up. Get a helicoil when you can. Don't let a quick fix lead to long lasting problems.

How to replace regulator on husky air scout model 41004

On my air scout the regulator cap, which is threaded to receive the bolt attached to the regulator knob was stripped. It's cheapo metal. I removed that and the knob (which is held onto the bolt with a smaller reverse-threaded screw, and replaced the cap using a larger diameter bolt I place of the knob. Works.

Spark plug cylinder stripped

This can be repaired with a heli coil ( thread insert ) they are normally a short 14mm thread, an good chain saw/engineering shop will do this for you, or you can purchase your own kit and do it, but this will be expensive if you are only doing one

Spark plug tube striped spark plug jumped out of tube

The issue seems to be related to the spark plug threads. The spark plug is either not tightened down or the threads are stripped, and during the compression stroke when pressure is applied inside the combustion chamber, the pressure leaks thru the spark plug threads and blows off the spark plug boot. If the spark plug is not tightened and the threads are ok, then tightening the plug will resolve this issue. If the spark plug threads are damaged, then the threads will need to be repaired, and will require the cylinder head to be removed to repair the stripped threads. Taking the cylinder head off requires the engine's top end to be ripped apart and re-assembled....big job.
