I must say even though the instructions that come with this say if you've used a Fix-a-Thread kit to repair a blow out before to skip 2 steps, don't. It's easier to follow the instructions step by step. And I would strongly recommend anyone doing this themselves to use an air ratchet for steps 1 and 2 at low speed, simply by hand will take quite a bit of effort and time, with air tools, I did the 1st 2 steps in a matter of minutes. I then did the following steps by hand and to the letter. This is a great kit!! Ford Dealers are charged $500 or so for this kit, and it's the only kit Ford approves under warranty as well, if it's not the Ford manufactured kit.
You can find a few vids on Youtube, if you want guidance before attempting this, which I recommend. This is by far the best price and shipping was 4 days from Cali to NJ, it would of been 3 if not for the weekend.
The longest part of this repair was the prep work because of the way that my Mustang is set up. Follow each step as outlined on the instruction sheet and you can not go wrong. I was done with this repair in about two hours, since this is the first time that I have done this I consider that a decent time.
The replacement spark plug went in with no issues once the insert was installed, checked the torque and fired up my engine. Running like it should. This is a great kit and costs about the same as someone would quote you to put in a heli-coil which can fail eventually. This kit is so good at what it does that Ford has approved it as an acceptable repair for this issue. Also this was done over the fender, I did not need to remove the heads to do this repair, another bonus in my book.
I would not hesitate to recommend this kit to anyone with a Ford engine that has had a problem with spark plugs being blown out of their heads.
This is the kit they use when they reman the Ford F150 heads for stripped out spark plug holes.
I say that the kit comes with ALMOST everything you need. What I needed to add were:
* Ratchet set
* Air Ratchet ($80 @ harbor freight)
* Compressor (already had one)
* Grease (to help catch metal chips)
* Break Cleaner (to cleanup the freshly tapped threads)
* Air gun attachment (about an 18" tip bent to fit into the cylinder - < $5 @ Harbor Freight) to blow out metal from my cylinder after each step
* Magnet with telescoping handle to pull out metal from my cylinder after each step
Not being a mechanic, I didn't know how long to do the first two grinding/drilling steps. I only knew that I didn't do it enough when I got to the tapping step, and it wasn't cutting new threads. It spun and spun and spun for like 5 minutes without cutting before I figured I should retry the previous 2 steps. I had to go back to step 1 and step 2 again before I was able to successfully tap the new threads.
The second time around, I dabbed a little bit of grease on the stopper area where the bits would hit the block when you've drilled enough, and when it was all smeared, I knew it was touching the head, so I had to have drilled far down enough. The tools are made so that they won't cut any more and will just spin freely when you've reach the proper depths, so you don't have to worry about going too far.Read more ›
