: How badly stripped was your block?

Was wondering how good these timeserts are?

My block had 2 head bolts come out with 3 threads from the block, and one bolt came out with ALL the threads from the block on it!

Is that indicative of a potential problem installing the time-serts, or is this a normal repair that the time-serts can handle?

I guess I'm just nervous.

Thanks,
Kevin

Be sure to use the correct kit for Northstar head bolt holes. They have longer steel inserts (30 mm) than normal.
