Could someone help me ? I decided to check my spark plugs yesterday, when it was time to put the 10mm coil pack bolts back in I seemed to have ripped the thread out of the hole the bolt goes in :censored: does anyone have any ideas how to resolve this ? thanks

When they drill & put the rough tap in to create the thread that hold the helicoil there will be swarf in the bore. Personally I wouldn't rely on vacuum & compressed air to get it out.

If you don't remove the plug how you gonna get the helicoil in between the plug & the head. I had to do it on 1 of my old 2 stroke bikes & there was quite a bit of swarf when I drilled the plug hole out in order to make the hole bigger so that the helicoil would fit

Helicoil as said, i've done quite a few. Thread is way stronger after helicoiling, far better than the original (as it should be).
