<VV> Inserts

The regular Timesert (Which I like and use) is only intended for insertion  
into a standard size - but partially/mostly screwed-up - original thread. 
If a  thread has been opened up for the insertion of a helicoil, the standard 
Timesert  won't fit. As Chuck mentioned, either you try the "Big Sert" or 
go to see the  welder. Please note, I have never used the Big Sert. But if I 
was the designer  of that piece, I would make the large diameter thread the 
size that screws into  an "unthreaded helicoil" hole left behind. Know your 
market! (grin) - Seth

Timesert  also makes a heavy wall insert intended for use in a hole that
previously  had a Helicoil that blew out.
