  • bolt hole threads came out

    Noticed a little water dripping from poppet valve cover. So I removed cover and replaced gaskets. Some of the gasket material was gone. then reassembled the assembling and was putting in the bolts. I noticed the bottom bolt would not tighten it just spun. So i removed all of the bolts and noticed threads came out with this bolt. How would I go about fixing this? There are some threads left in the bottom but not enough to catch. I have it back together and cant pull this bolt out but it will not tighten. It is not leaking now. Also will it be ok to run this engine until I can get it fixed Since it is not leaking. Thanks James

    Purchase a Heli-Coil kit for the size that is required.

      TSKM. Thanks for the help. I looked it up on line. This makes me feel better. Do you know if these can be purchased at any type of retail place or will I have to order on line? Thanks James
