    Water manifold threads gone

    Hey all,
    My "threads in the heads" for the water manifold have been stripped and looks like PO put a thread repair coil in there (small spring looking thing i assume thats what it is), now this coil has come out, I dont own any tap and die kits.
    How can I go about repairing them?

    Just get a different set of heads. Try Ebay or John zigler, oe even ATS aron. They may have some pretty cheap.

    Yeah either replace the damaged head(s) or purchase the insert(s) and tap you need for the repair. Use inserts not a heli-coil.

    Hmm inserts and tap sounds good, where would I get that cheap?
    P.S ph2ocraft you were right about my battery not charging on my trickle charger gave it a jump and It charged up just fine

    I'd check Mcmaster-Carr, those guys seem to have all this stuff.
    Glad the battery worked out!!

    Go to the threaded inserts section.
