  1. Add-on Kit for 5553 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2015

    Used the 5588 ad on kit to fix threads in an Expedition that had a previous repair done with a Dorman parts store repair that left the hole too big for my 5553 kit. Excellent instructions, great kit saved my customer a lot of money!

  2. Saved the head! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2015

    Already had a Time Sert 5553 kit that has always worked great up until a 2002 Ford F150 with a 5.4L came in the shop that had previously been "fixed" with a Dorman "HELP" thread repair fitting and long spark plug. Obviously since I'm writing about this, the Dorman failed in a big way. I tried the 5553 but the hole was just too big! Found the add on kit 5588 for my 5553 and this triple oversize kit was just the ticket. Back in business in about an hour. Happy customer because I save their cylinder head. Thanks for having this kit!

  3. Time Sert 5588 and 5553 with Triple Oversize Sert 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2015

    I have a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a Triton v-10. I have used the 5553 Sert kit to fix 3 blown plugs and what a fantastic kit. Everything with the kit and instructions worked flawlessly. I made a major mistake the other day when trying to add an insert and did not realize there was a steel insert from someone one else's fix before I owned the truck. Needless to say the Steel Sert (not a time sert) dropped down in the #7 hole on top of the piston. Of course the sert would not come out the same hole because it was not large enough. I looked on the Time Sert website and read a review of someone else having the same problem, but they were able to fix it with the 5588 oversize add on kit along with the 5553. Since I already had the 5553, I bought the 5588 add on kit and without going into a lengthy letter, I must say the kit worked great the steel sert came out the oversize hole (with a magnet) and again the kit did everything exactly the way the instructions said it would. My V-10 purrs along just like it should and if it ever blows another plug I know exactly what to do to fix it with the Time Sert Kit. FYI - if you don't have the 5553 but need the tripleoversize insert kit, the Time Sert 5600 is the stand alone kit.
