Time-Sert

Not sure if any of you heard of this.
As you may recall, I have been going through my issues with stripping a drain plug on the Nighthawk. First, I unsuccessfully tried to find an oversized plug. Next it was to pull the oil pan and re-thread the drain. I decided on a Time-Sert kit and recommend it highly. It was a breeze.

Gaskets and new plug should be in tomorrow. If I can get everything put back together, I am gonna put the old girl in the wind.

Very cool Phil! I like those better than a HeliCoil set up. Just curious as to cost difference between the two?

HeliCoil seems to have a history of backing out. This Time-Sert is a complete Carbon Steel sleeve. The kit was $92.00 but will be on ebay pretty soon.

Way cheaper than a pan replacement I'm sure, Not a bad deal for a possible catastrophe!

Especially when there isn't a pan to replace it with.

Sure glad you found a fix. I will have to keep this in mind as I came close to the same issue with my Yamaha.
