NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

Time-Sert Thread Repair Insert, 10 x 1.5 x 24.5mm Long, EACH, 10155
Time-Sert Thread Repair Insert, 10 x 1.5 x 24.5mm Long, EACH, 10155
Price: $4.00
Item eligible for Econo/1st Class Mail shipment, min ship charge applies

Time-Sert Thread Repair Insert, 10 x 1.5 x 24.5mm Long, EACH, 10155 is the insert for the 10 x 1.5mm Time-Sert when repairing damaged engine mounting studs that have stripped the engine case, to a better than new condition. Inserts are sold per EACH.Time-Sert inserts are superior in every way to typical "Heli Coil" thread repair kits (which are usually wrapped wire, very weak and troublesome to install!).

Time-Sert inserts are solid, and also have a flared shoulder that prevents leakage, and locks the insert into place without excessive Loctite needed.

The repair process is to drill out the old threads, then use the shoulder cutting tool (To make room for the insert's shoulder on the top), tap the hole, then install the new insert. Hole will be repaired, and will be stronger and better than it was when it was new, due to the larger diameter holding power!

Heavy Duty Lifter Bore Cutter Tool (Lifter Boss Cutter) Rental Fee, GB725
Heavy Duty Lifter Bore Cutter Tool (Lifter Boss Cutter) Rental Fee, GB725
Rental Fee $20.00
$100 Tool Core charged AT TIME OF SHIPMENT (refunded upon return per terms of service)

Heavy Duty Lifter Bore Cutter Tool (Lifter Boss Cutter) Rental Fee, GB725 is used to clearance the engine case's lifter bores for lifter head clearance. Inadequate clearance is not uncommon with high lift cam shafts, you should have .040" minimum clearance at full lift! As stated in the VW factory bulletin; the cam to cam follower boss clearance is often not enough even if you are using a new stock VW cam with the factory stock cam followers, the engine case radius is often not enough with the lifter under head profile.

High lift cams will usually require additional clearancing at the cam follower bosses. This tool is designed to be used in a drill press, but it can easily be used with high quality 1/2" hand drill if you are careful. The high speed tool steel cutter is ground with special angles to cut the boss, and to contour the radius at the same time.
