my 300ex has an oil leak between the cam cover and the head and when i checked it out i found 3 bolts that hold the cam cover on were stripped out.:icon_cussing: could i use a helicoil kit to fix them or should i just replace the head? thanks in advance.

have you seen the thread repair that is an epoxy like jbweld sorta. it is at most autoparts stores just check the directions im pretty sure it cant be submerged in oil
i think that the helicoil will be an only option im pretty sure that the permatex is who makes it isnt any good in oily locations and it will not hold. i tried for a neighbor with a nissan when someone broke a pedistal mount
