Blew a Spark Plug... Time-Sert kit?

So this morning I blew out spark plug #3. Don't feel like pulling out the motor.....just yet. This is my daily and would like to keep it that way for two more years before I go wild with it. I've been reading nothing but good reviews on the ''Time-Sert'' kit to repair Ford spark plug blow outs. Even people who don't have much mechanic experience have done it successfully in under 2 hours without removing the heads.

Anyone used this kit before?


I also hope my synchros last a lil while as well

I bought a kit from advance auto parts for 40$ and I haven't had a problem with it yet! Took maybe 30mins to do

Lol, i found a thread you started while searching this. Was it a spark blow out or spun bearing?

I've had two plugs blow out so far and I've used a heli-coil kit both times without any issues. Didn't have to pull off the head at all, just make sure to coat the tap non some thick grease to make sure no metal shavings get in the cylinder.

I blew out like three plugs and then a couple months later spun a bearing
