    Question Need a Timesert kit

    Hi All,
    does anybody have a Northstar Timesert Kit that I could borrow, or rent, or buy at a good price? new is 370.00.

    I can't aford that, dealer wants 340.00 to do one side.

    I can get a standard metric kit for about 106.00, but it doesn't have the special tools and plate in the Northstar kit.

    I can get the Timeserts for about 5.00 a piece.

    I'm near Jackson, Mississippi

    can anybody help? I'll pay for shipping cost.
    thanks
    Ken

    Sorry, I must be getting dyslexic. Maybe my very short term memory is getting bad!

    Re: Need a Timesert kit

    I looked on Ebay under Timesert, Time sert, Time-sert, and there was nothing, how did you find it? and do you know if there were more?
    I did find the Helicoil type.
    would you rent it to me? say $50 + shipping, I would only need it for a weekend, and I will buy the inserts I need seperately.
    thanks

    Re: Need a Timesert kit

    I saw a kit with M11x2.0 , I think this for head bolt holes on a 98-99 Corvette LS1, would using this kit work and just buy new M11x2.0 bolts?
    thanks

    M11x 2.0 inserts with new M11x 2.0 bolts from the Corvette would fix that,
    would anyone have a heartburn about the modification?
    thanks

    Re: Need a Timesert kit

    There was an insert set on ebay a few weeks ago that looked longer than the timesert. If there's room in the block then it should be better than the timeserts.


    I didn't save the link...maybe somebody else did.

    Re: Need a Timesert kit

    I was thinking of buying the kit new, then when done with it, (I'm going to use it only one time), put it on ebay, (new $370), if someone wanted to buy it from me, for a reasonable cost, my true expense would be easier to swallow. (370.00 - 225.00 = true expense of 145.00), any interested?
