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.

HElicoils are going to be the best bet but if I had to guess where the ones that are stripped Id say the are the ones with the copper washers
your right moose, the ones that are stripped are the 2 bolts that go through the rocker arm pins on the left side and they have the washers on them. the other bolt is on the left front corner. i will look at the epoxy stuff that ostrx mentioned but id say the helicoils would be stronger. thanks for the help!
thanks for the suggestions guys. i will get a helicoil kit ordered this week and see what i can do.
