Can I get some more info on "timeserts"? Anyone tell me where I can find a kit? How about costs and whether they did the trick for you. Thanks...

Wurst carries them,that's who I got mine from.

Expensive,yes,but excellent.You'll not want a heli-coil again for exhaust studs,etc. where you may have to remove the stud/bolt in the future for repairs,etc..

Cost was borderline "no friggin way",I think I paid like $63 for a set plus shipping.Comes with a drill bit,tap,chamfer bit,insert tool and I think 5 inserts when you order the size for exhaust studs.

Pay more,but you get the best results.My experienced opinion.;)

Paul, he is looking to repair EA71 head-stud holes. IIRC, Timeserts have been used for this, yes? I think calebz said that he had a kit.

Sorry Paul, not trying to beat you up for information not in evidence... just trying to provide a little more background to the first person from whom I heard about Timeserts. :) He had talked about the stripped stud hole in another thread. I figured that you would know for sure if the right Timesert kit was available.

No sweat,but I only click on about 5% of the posts out there these days.
Pat,I think I've held your tools hostage long enough.Sorry about that.I'll get them going either later this week or early next week.
Cheers
