    I wish I had the part number of the helicoil kit we use at work, I have been very successful at putting in helicoils in spark plug tubes using the kit we have. Any time spark plugs are replaced it is important to use a dab of never seize on the thread of the plug to prevent it from seizing and also important to torque the plug correctly. If you reply tomorrow I will get a separate email sent to meat work from Repairpal and will forward the helicoil kit number to you.

    You need to find a differant shop. It does not cost a "BUNDLE". Hopefully Pat will get you the info.
