If you find the helicoil I have the installation tool. I'm in cocoa. Unfortunately I'm out of the helicoils.

I have the Perma-Coil kit, Part #1218-500. I like them much better than Helicoils for spark plug threads, they seal better. Put them in with red locktite, but if they ever thread out, you just thread them back in.

I will be passing through the area in a bit and will be in SE Orlando area off the Beachline for a few days. I will have the kit in my truck, look for a PM if still needed.

I grew up thinking I-10 was the Mason Dixon line.
