Any one have an 8mm helicoil kit (tap & insert tool) I could borrow or buy cheap? I need to be helicoiled a couple of headbolt holes on my Magna V45. I know I can buy a kit but, I suspect it is something that I will probably never have another use for.

Thanks!

Thanks for looking. I guess I will just have to breakdown and buy one myself!

I have the kit, if you still need it.

Yes, I do still need a kit. Of, course, with the price of gas, the round-trip from Clovis to Visalia might be about the same as buying one. And since it is the motorcycle head I need it for, riding my bike there is not an option. Know anyone that commutes to Fresno that might be able to carry it?
