    HELP!! with 30mm plug screws

    I'm putting together a 4tec motor and one of the 30mm plug screws on the bottom is stripped. Does anyone have a 30m x 1.5 tap they could rent me for a day? or any ideas? Thanks

    the threads are stripped or the torx ? id love to see a 30mm tap

    one of mine was in there pretty good and stopped the torx, i threw some grease on a drill bit and turned the motor upside down on the engine stand and went at it, used some heat and an easy out and out she came... no debris was inside the engine either
