To All,
The spark plug threads in my cylinder head are stripped.
A local machine shop put a steel insert in, instead of
a Heli-Coil, and now the insert threads are stripped.
I may need a cylinder head if I cannot get this one
fixed.
Anyone have a head available at a reasonable price?
Thanks,
Roy

To All,

A friend of mine, who runs a welding and machine shop
and is a wizard at welding and other
mechanical tricks, welded the spark plug hole shut, then
drilled and tapped it. Cost was a phenomenal no charge!
I owe him at least one or two for solving my problem.
My cylinder head is fixed.

That's all,

I didn't see your post in time, but I repaired an aluminun cylinder head for a motorcycle the same way. Works great and is stronger than the original aluminum that was threaded intially.

Brian,

Cool! I hope you're right about the welded aluminum
being stronger than the original material.
