OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

14mm x 1.25mm Spark Plug Thread Repair Back Tap Tool Rental Fee
14mm x 1.25mm Spark Plug Thread Repair Back Tap Tool Rental


 
14mm x 1.25mm Spark Plug Thread Repair Back Tap Tool Rental is a tool designed to repair 14 x 1.25mm Spark Plug Threads that are just messed up a little bit (not "stripped), with engine IN CAR. This can really save your bacon! Using this tool sure beat R&Ring the engine and then pulling the cylinder heads off!

This Patented Design allows for chasing spark plug threads from inside the cylinder head and working outwards, to move the flow of chips OUT of your engine instead of into it! The tool uses the better threads at the base of the spark plug port and greatly reduces the chance of debris from falling into the cylinder. Works on 14mm spark plug threads. This is 6" long which clears most cylinder tin and intake manifolds. Tool is best used with 1/2" socket and extension if needed.

To use this you need a little patience to get it started properly. Once that is done, work it like you would any tap; out a little then in to clean the threads. Shoot some more lube on it back it out slowly all the way out then clean any chips off the tool. Collapse it and put it back in to do it again, repeat. Sounds complicated, but only takes 20 minutes or so worst case!

Rental Terms of Service Agreement

I agree to abide by all Aircooled.Net Rental Tool Terms and Conditions.
 
RENTAL CHARGES and TERMS OF SERVICE: The Tool Rental Period is one month from the date we ship to you. The rental period INCLUDES the time in transit to you and the time in transit for sending it back (both of these vary depending on where you live and what shipping method you select). On date of shipment you will be charged for the rental fee AND in addition, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL ALSO BE CHARGED FOR THE TOOL CORE AMOUNT. . If your rental tool is not received back by Aircooled.Net in undamaged condition within the one month rental period deadline, then YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED THE FULL  TOOL CORE AMOUNT. If you subsequently return the tool, the amount refunded will reflect a 25% administrative fee. We are strict about our one month rental period because there are often others waiting for their turn to use a rental tool kit, and sometimes those guys are riding a bike while waiting for it!

One last important item to note is that it is YOUR responsibility to properly re-package, and fully insure the kit for sending it back. If you fail to insure the package and it is lost or damaged in transit, you will NOT BE REFUNDED the TOOL CORE CHARGE. Please appropriately follow the Tool Rental Return Instructions (which will be emailed to you on the day that your rental ships to you).
