Has anyone done a Heli-coil for spark plug thread stripped out?
Like the title says,
Has anyone had success doing there stripped out spark plug hole?
I bought the reverse 12mm tap to go in the hole and expand it, then come back out slowly and fix the threads,
it sounded good on paper but it did not work,

either will work, but time sert is the bees knees. thats what was used on my intake manifold since the t/b flange was drilled too large before tapping.

If only you posted this last week when I was in Houston. I have a whole kit of different timesert sizes that would had worked for your spark plug.
