Re: Spark plug head Helicoil

Standard M14x1.25 x 19mm (3/4") spark plug thread. I prefer inserts rather than Helicoils for plug repairs, less chance of winding in a helicoil into the combustion chamber when you change a plug. Dude you have done it again thanks for the info you helped us last time and it worked a treat thanks B...

Inlet manifold stud thread patten and count?

How'dy it's a tall one but would anyone know the thread gauge figure of an inlet manifold stud on a 2.0 CU Aircooled? I have stripped one and looking to helicoil it but need to know size and thread count before I purchase one

Thanks

Re: replacement 2.0 Aircooled pushrod tubes

ok I have just discovered how the 1.6 differs from the 2.0 the 2.0 Push rod tubes are changed by removing the rocker covers and then the rocker assy there is a "Push rod retaining spring that holds them in place once this is removed the tube pull out through the head :ok
