I stripped one of the six bolt holes in my crank shaft flange that hold the fly wheel on. Got a Helicoil kit and driled and taped the hole for the Helicoil, that all went well. But when the I installed the thread coil, the flange it only 1/4" deep, so you must cut the coil. After three coils I got the coil cut right. It is not as easy as installing the coil in a deep hole. So if you screw the coil on the bolt and use that to find were to cut the coil off, also use the best cutter you have.
