yup first oil change i stripped mine out. I was using a torque ( i forget what it is but my manual has it) so i just used a heli-coil and drilled it out slightly and insterted the new threads and now it works good. No leaking or anything. Oh yeah and make to put oil on the drill bit to hold some of the shavings and then run a little old oil through it with the bolt off to clean out the shavings

Is there any directions or tips you could offer in using heli-coil? What size insert did you use?
