Product #: TimeSert 5600 DLT

Your Price: $557.80

TIME-SERT 5600 This is the largest outside diameter spark plug thread repair kit available for M14x1.25mm taper seat plugs. It's called a "Standalone Triple Oversized" spark plug thread repair kit. If you already have the TIME-SERT 5553 an additional add on kit can be purchased to achieve the what this tool set does as a "stand alone" kit. It's more cost effective to purchase the add on kit #5588 if the 5553 is already owned. If the 5553 is not already in possession, then this kit pn #5600 is less expensive alternative to purchasing the two kits separately. However, this kit does NOT install just the Big Sert without the triple oversize insert. If you would like the capability of installing ONLY the Big Sert (smaller of the two) inserts when the triple oversize is not needed, use the Time Sert 5678. The 5678 is the add on kit for the 5600. See more details on the Time Sert 5600 FAQ's article.
Installed over the fender. The repair process involves installing an insert inside an insert to achieve the triple over-size outside diameter. The original spark plug can then be installed saving the cost of replacing the cylinder head, gaskets and the labor time associated with R&R of the head. *Note that for first time repairs the 5553 kit is recommended.

*Please note that the progress of the depth that the reamer has reached should be closely monitored. In the video at around 7:08, we mention that the tool will not go but so far because of the collar; While this is true in most cases, we advise to be careful and stop once the counter-bore (the widest portion) of the reamer has been reached. Forcing tool to continue cutting may possibly cause irreversible damage to head. Questions please call us at 800-524-9783 x251. Get more free tips emailed when purchasing from us.

Save me $4000!

Had a repair done with a different thread repair kit. Needless to say the spark plug shot out with the insert. The Time Sert 5600 triple oversize kit was EXACTLY what I needed. Saved me thousands of dollars!
