Les Henson Posted October 2, 2006 Share Posted October 2, 2006 Seeing as everyone is asking questions about other makes of veh - I thought I would jump on the bandwagon. I went to look at a BMW the other day, which was firing on 3 cylinders. The reason for this was that a spark plug was out, and the thread was so damaged, that it could be pushed back home without turning it. Obviously the head has to be removed and a helicoil insert fitted, but as an attempt at a temporary repair - I de-greased the plug thread and hole, then glued the plug in with Araldite Rapid. This lasted for two days, but gave up again this morning. While the customer gets the money together to have the head repaired properly, he still relies on the car for his daily transport. So perhaps there is a suitable glue out there that might last longer thatn Araldite? Anyone have any suggestions please? Les. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
