This Saved two engines for me so far. I bought it because I needed it for my own van and then for a friends Mustang. It allows you to make the repair on the car immediately with little effort. The price is very worth the money. You can always sell it after making your repair. I keep this inside the house and may use it once or twice again in my life but boy when you need it you will be so happy.
2001 Ford F-350 V-10 had two spark plugs blow out from same cylinder. Both times cylinder was repaired with over the counter repair kits. Spark plug blew a third time and while researching this issue I came across the Time Sert 5600 Triple O-Size Spark Plug Kit W/Leak Tester! I wish I had of located this tool previously! It fixed the problem and simple to use. Highly recommend it!!
I bought a used F-250 Super Duty 6.8 V10 1999, to my horror, found out the hard way, an over the counter repair had failed on a blown spark plug hole. The time-sert triple oversized was my only option if I wanted to do the repair myself. Watched the videos, followed the directions, truck started right up no issues when the repair was complete. (3/8 in drive pneumatic ratchet is a must!) My only complaint, not with the kit, with the directions. Having been an aircraft mechanic for over 25 years, I believe more torque specs should be included. "about 20 ft lbs to install" does work for explaining when the die has completed. It would have also been helpful to know if the spark plug could be torqued to factory specs of 27ft lbs, or if because of the insert, the torque required is less. Maybe that will be answered in follow on instructions. Over all, extremely pleased! The repair went just as described. The kit arrived in a very timely manner and is in an awesome storage case with all the parts being laser etched with their part number. Management: Thanks for the review. Yes, normal spark plug torque spec is fine. The threads are stronger than original. Appreciate the commets and will pass them on to the manufacturer.
2002 Mustang fixed the blown out plug without any issues. My sons car, tried the auto store insert first (failure). We took our time carefully reading instructions on each step. Had everything done in about 90 minutes. Borrowed a bore scope to verify that all the shavings were out of the cylinder. Beats the crap out of pulling cylinder head.
