I'm after a 13/32 drill bit tomorrow then trying to sort all this after I run power "over the river and through the woods" to my parking spot.

I've watched a couple of videos of helicoil repairs, they sometimes thread them in tang first, sometimes tang last. Usually with a shaft that turns the tang driving in the coil, then snappin' off the coil.
The kit came instead with what looks like a shortened cylinder stud that treads into the helicoil ...anyone else familiar with it?
Try Marshall's Industrial Hardware off Miramar Road for the bit if you can't find it at a big box store. They're almost sure to have it.
