Post How do I fix this?
Someone put an oversized bolt in here because the hole is stripped out. The oversized bolt doesn't pull up tight because it interferes with the cover and, once I got the cover off, I found out it doesn't really thread right in the hole anyway.

I love youtube.

Looks easy enough. Can you rent a kit or do you have to buy the whole thing?

:flag: Do this right the first time. Get everything out of your way before you start. Make sure you drill the hole for the helicoil straight (from the looks of the odd bolt it may be crooked) into the block. Clean, clean, clean..............did I say clean the hole out and follow the directions that come with the kit. To do it correctly is a test of patience and will. Good luck. :exit:

Does that bolt have a 1/2 head on it or 7/16? a 1\2 head will meen that it has 5/16 thick threads on it. A 7/16 will be 1/4 threads. does it leak?

It's a 1/2 head and doesn't leak, but I'm pulling it off to replace the cam so I thought I would put it back right.

Got my helicoil kit, getting ready to drill it. I wanted to measure the depth of the holes. The one that needs fixing is 1/4 of an inch shallower than the other. I tried to make sure it wasn't just something jammed in there. It seems solid. Why would this be? Do I need to drill it deeper?

Also, why can't I find a new plain stock timing cover? I don't want chrome or scripted. No one can seem to get them.
