    Believe I posted the last thread in the wrong place! And I honestly couldn’t figure out how to delete it! So I believe this post belongs on this forum !
    So I believe I’m going to have to helicoil the exhaust manifold stud because the first couple threads were ripped out (previous owner) I just want to know if I’m going to have to pull the head:( id prefer not to I was wondering if I could just like fill the hole up with vassaline or something to try and catch the shavings. Because if I have to pull the head I’m going to go ape sh** and just build it and do a new hg and timing belt , water pump, etc. and quite frankly I’m only 16 and that means the car will be down for even longer! Please let me know thanks!
