    Got a couple stripped threads in a couple of the bolt holes of my powerhead.  No big deal but if you've read any of my other know I'm a perfectionist, OCD, and a hypochondriac.  Since they're not major, I don't really want to spend the $40 on a helicoil kit.

    Never tried that stuff but I once tried a helicoil kit on a lawnmower and it got me to finish the job but that was about it.

    Good luck

    Haha like I said, no big deal. They aren't major bolts that are prone to much pressure. I would just prefer the motor to be as like new as possible. Going to try and pick the stuff up from Ace tonight. Hopefully it works...
