The most common problem we help people deal with is related to parts store thread repair kits that have failed. Once this happens the owner or shop sometimes tries unsuccessfully to re-install another of the same type inserts. When a parts store insert fails it makes the hole bigger, which prevents the same size insert from being able to help matters. Other times, some shops will say (mistakenly) that the cylinder head has to be replaced! If you have a similar situation, we can most likely recommend to you or your repair shop a professional, permanent type repair that will save the head and save a lot of money. No time to read?

The inserts are held in by the bottom being expanded when the install driver is used. This creates a solid repair and is GM’s only authorized thread repair. GM does not recommend stud type repairs in place of the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts. Ten inserts are used per side so if doing an entire block be sure to order 20. Some GM dealers prefer to order these in bulk at an even greater savings. See our bulk pricing on the Kent Moore J-42385-507 100-Pack.
The 1/8″ Rescue Bit can be used in a drill or in a die grinder. We have the 1/8″ Rescue Bit listed with a collet which is the adapter that fits 1/4″ straight and 90 degree air die grinders. It adapts the die grinder so it can use 1/8 accessories, in this case the 1/8″ Rescue Bit. See our Rescue Bits for sale on our main website. Denlors Auto Blog
