    The bolts are most likely 5 MM. If you can manage to get the remaining out via a drll, etc, and mess up the treads, simply use a 6 MM tap and install larger 6 MM bolts.

    Have fun,

    I emailed him 2 days ago, and haven't gotten a response... Maybe he doesn't read his Email either.

    stripped bolts

    Did not get your email Al.Fisherman. Please try again.
    In the mean i'll try the 6mm tap. If necessary, where can I get the healycores?
    Thanks for all your replies. any other ideas please email, I check often.

    I would try to tap to 6 MM before you purchase a 5 MM helicoil kit[$35.00 to $50.00]. The reason is two-fold, first is cost as a tap is usually under $5.00, and the helicoil will need to use a lot more of the metal between the port and exhaust bolt holes.


    Have fun,

    whats with the desire to email?

    whether you have success or failure, you write a follow up here, on this thread, detailing what the problem was and whether it has been resolved. otherwise, whats the point of having a forum board in the first place?!?!?

    :jester: healy cores...thats someone whose never purchased one :jester:
