    Hi. I am looking to helicoil all studs: that is, the engine mounts, intake and exhaust mounts, and head studs. It does not need to be helicoil, any brand of comprable technology will do. If anyone has a kit with the proper sizes for the whole engine, I'd like to talk.

    I don't have experience with Happy Time engines, just with machinery, Helicoils and working with a limited budget...

    Find out what thread sizes you need Helicoils for. Partially used kits come up fairly often on eBay for bargain prices.
    If you aren't in a big hurry, you can often score a "deal".

    May I ask you why? I have NEVER pulled a stud out of a hole, NEVER stripped a nut or stud, in 5 engines. Although they are NOT stock fasteners.

    If you are determined to Heli Coil, the 6mm studs are 6 x 1.0, and the 8mm can be either 8 x 1.25 (most common) or 8 x 1.0.
