Ok, I'm an idiot, I over torqued one of my valve cover bolts and the thread gave way.
Good thing is that it was the bolt on the edge, the one that holds down the rubber cam end seal. So its pretty easy to get at and it goes right through the head. So....
What is the best option?
1) Retap the hole to the next size up (from a 6mm to a 8mm hole)
2) Use one of those inserts, Helicoil, kits and keep the standard bolt?
I'm cheap and as proven by my latest deed, dont know very much, so I'm leaning to the retapping. Sounds simple enough for me to not mess up....
Any and all suggestions welcome.
