Yes LD, that one is a little tougher, but TimeSert has some bigger inserts as well. Personally never had to look for anything 18mm specifically though.

BIG-SERT® OVERSIZED THREAD REPAIR KITS AND INSERTS

Used for threads which have been previously repaired and failed.

These kits will repair holes that were repaired by helicoil, perma-coil,
uni-coil, recoil or any other simular coil style insert that has failed.

I went back to autozone today, and got the right insert. I went with the threaded insert over the helicoil. It was VERY easy to put in and now I just have to resurface the head.

Sweet! What system did you go with ? ( I personally hope it was the Timesert, LOL) Much better than a Helicoil fo this application...

I am not sure what it was, it is the one with the threads on the inside and outside. Half of the outside threads where like little teeth, and it came with this thing that you put on the insert then hit it with a hammer.

Ryan, glad to hear you got it fixed. Hopefully, you're home free now.
Looking forward to the "I got it back together and it's running" post. :thumbs:
