Re: Spark Plug Thread Re-Tap
Is this a "normal" Helicoil, the type that looks like a spring ? Or one of their "sav-a-thread" kits with the solid insert ? If it is the solid insert I would just put it back in and dont worry about it for now. Maybe put some High Temp Red Loctite on the outside of the insert and hope it stays in next time.
Since it has already been repaired once, the only Timesert kit that is going to work will be a "Bigsert" and I would not recommend trying that with it on the car.
