Helicoil question.


Recommended Posts

I have a friend that just found out that his new-to-him truck has had helicoils installed into the spark plug holes in this truck. Are these things one time use only? Once you loosen or remove the spark plug, do you need to put in a fresh helicoil?


Thanks guys,

I'm working on an aluminium Mazda F8 head right now - just about all the studs are helicoiled in it, and some are pulling out - not nice to work with. But I guess with the older motors you've got to expect wear and tear.
