Free Shipping. The TIME-SERT 2200 head bolt thread repair kit is a universal head bolt thread kit that can be used on a variety of automobile engines that use the very common metric size 11 millimeter by 1.5 millimeter bolt size. This is for a "first time" repair which means it has never had a repair insert of any kind installed previously. For second time repairs use a Big Sert kit which has the letters BS following the numeric kit number. We have a partial application list below. The 2200 is considered a "universal" kit because the tooling has an adjustable stop that can be adjusted to work on holes of different depths. Although, it works on other engines, the 2200 kit is mostly used for Toyota engines. There's is even a TSB out saying that this kit is what's recommended to repair the three or four middle bolts on the backside of the head of many Toyota engines. We recommend installing all ten inserts on Toyota's while the head is off to eliminate any pulled threads when installing the head bolts and torqueing to the manufacturers' specifications (torque specs). That also also eliminates weak links that the remaining aluminum threads would end up being, that could possibly fail shortly after the car is back on the road. Therefore it's recommended to upgrade to the much stronger tensile strength steel, bushing type inserts (part number 11155) that are included in the Time-Sert 2200 head bolt thread repair kit. TIME-SERT is recommended by leading automobile manufacturers. See our pictures for measurements of tooling in SAE (inches) and in metric (millimeters). Questions and Answers on the Time Sert 2200.

If ordered here on we'll ship to Canada however import fees are not covered.

See the following video for our explanation of: What makes Time Sert "better" than Heli Coil?

Question - On the holes that have line-up dowels. Do you have to replace the dowels? Will the hole be too large after reaming? 

Answer - No. The tooling will not disturb the original dowel hole. Dowels have to be removed before you can drill the hole that has a dowel in it. The dowel will go back in as long as it was not damaged when it was removed. See our dowel removal tool CV95400. Workaround without the special tool below. Caution: Do not mar the surface of the block!


Place a suitable bolt that will fit closely into Dowel so that it will not crush. Use a pair of vise grips to hold on the "outside" of the dowel. Slowly work the dowel back and forth as you use slight pressure under the vise grip with a screw driver to give up lift. Use care not to scratch the top of block in the process. Sometimes head alignment dowels will come out easy and sometimes hard depending on tolerances of the block, how much the dowel gets crushed in the process, or rust, etc.

Question - I only need to repair one hole's threads. Do you sell just the tap?

Answer - No, we only sell individual Time Sert tools if our customer has a kit and needs a replacement piece for an existing kit. There is a reason for every tool in the kit (see the video). Just the tap is not enough to install an insert. Notice the reamer is NOT a regular drill bit. If a someone needs a replacement core drill or tap call to order at 800-734-8665.

    Camry Head Bolt Thread Fix!

    Posted by Ross N. on 14th Jul 2016

    Highly Recommend

    Posted by Bill S on 12th Mar 2016

    The American Made 2200 kit is a must when you need to install a head gasket on a Toyota with stripped cylinder block threads for the headbolts. Time Sert makes it very easy to use and makes it a profitable job for shops and saves money for the car owner. I highly recommend and would suggest purchasing additional thread inserts for future jobs. 10 needed per 4cyl block.

    Saved the Block!

    Posted by Craig B on 16th Nov 2015

    Our mechanic had stripped threads when he went to tighten the head bolts. At first we thought the engine was trash. Come to find out this is a very common problem on Toyota Camry aluminum blocks. The repair was done easily with this kit. Otherwise the block was no good unless a machine shop could come up with a fix. I researched online and found the kit and bought it. Now my threads are stronger than when the car was new.
