helicoil in Newcastle upon Tyne
Hi Looking for someone with a helicoil in newcastle to do the normal sump plug repair. and a rough price
I can buy the kit for £80 on Ebay so would have thought it was cheaper then this.
I have searched on Google and just got loads of threads up.
if not can anyone suggest what size drill and tap would be best. I have a bench drill and a tap set but have not got the M18 1.5mm tap set. so wold need to buy a bigger one but not being an expert I dont know what size would be best.
BTW Sump is from a 1.6 TS 159 x Reg. No cracks but was leaking sumps off now as the shells are being replaced. Sump plug hole has been removed by a numbskull in the past who has well overtightend and stripped most of the thread off. Now I am in the need for the car to be put the sump back on soon I need to try and fix the sump plug.
Thanks in advance. I can bring it to the place and have cash waiting if anyone on here happens to have one. as near to NE27 area as possable.
