you mean where it bolts to the block? if so then you need a new block, rethreading wont hold.

That not necessarily true.

However, it needs to be done correctly. Which kit did you get? Is the block out of the car and accessible? Pics of the damage?

Youll be the first to fine out.

But if it were me, I would tap the holes for a bigger bolt, and drill the mount out to accomodate the next size bolts.

You could try helicoils, but not sure how well that is going to work for you. I would keep the timing cover off for a bit, so you can keep a close eye on it regardless.

Correct! Personally if the threads are all screwed up I'd take it to a machine shop and see if they could put some helicoils in there!

hahahahhahahhahahah i really really dont want to eat grandma, she has dust in her cooch.

anyways, it grinds my gears that people still think that re-threading is weaker than the original thread.. a properly installed helicoil (or timsert even stronger) should be just as strong if not stronger than the original threads. i know many people that would install helicoils in the entire block on there old school inline six mercedes because the headbolt holes would allways strip on them.

I personally have also used helicoils with great success on headbolts, main bolts, mounts and even those stupid little 10mm bolts that hold the valvecover down. and i have yet to pull one of those out.

^Good info right there. I don't know if I would trust drilling it bigger and tapping it, but helicoils have been known to be stronger than factory threads. I've never pulled a helicoil out or stripped one either. The only issue I've had with them is I had one come out when removing the bolt. Just installed another one and was good to go. If you already drilled and tapped it, I would just run it, and keep a close eye on it for a while.

OP- as stated before rethreading done right will hold no problem, How did it get stripped in the first place?
Lack of good mounts with added power?
Or did a muscly armed paper boy work on your car?

I just had to chase my number 5 cylinder on my other car (head still on block, yes it was nerver racking) but it worked. Next step would have been helicoil and pull the head.

The bottom line is don't do this in car. Yes, it's a pain in the balls, but you can do it correctly out of the car, an you will be way more likely to booger it up to the point you will HAVE to timesert it, and I DON'T recommend anyone do that on anything critical their first time.
