Auto parts stores tend to only have coils for the smaller sizes. If I want something uncommon, I personally order from McMaster-Carr. They deliver next day to my employer, no exceptions.

helicoils are not "liquid tight" all of the time. The Pile had a similar aliment - and when I talked to a MC tec he said I wanted something similar to a helicoil but not that exactly. I forgot what the name was that he used but if you talk with someone at your local shop they should be able to help. If not call Razee's and ask for Jeff in parts - he will know what you are asking for.

I've had good luck using Alvin's Lab Metal to repair destroyed casings. Once hardened it can be tapped or rethreaded.

For temporary plugging of petroleum products dry bar soap works well... just rub it into the cracks and it will stop the leaks.

I was able to tap a half inch 20 count without taking the motor off again,just that got to shave the head from an automotive magnetic plug.Note to self:use a new gasket with every oil change and don't overtighten it dummy!
If anybody wants some EE radiator guards for a KTM,come get them,bought the ones that can go over the fan kit

The copper washer is makes the seal, not the threads.
