    head bolt

    One of my head bolts going into my #2 cylinder is stripped out. Actually the threads on the cylinder are stripped out. is the easiest thing to do is tap to the next larger size?

    It's not uncommon to strip out the threads. Make sure you stick to the exact torque specs or you will pull out the threads.

    To answer your Q, use a Timesert or Helicoil. Don't enlarge the bolt hole.
