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.

I've used the thread repair epoxy, but I don't think it's recommended for use on something that gets as hot as the head.
I agree, the helicoil kits would be the way to go.
