    Head

    Anybody have a good used head for 1986 e28? One of my spark plug sockets are stripped and I tried tapping it, just made it worse. New head the way to go? Please email me back [email protected]

    If you take the head off I think you can repair the hole with a helicoil kit. Also, do you have a 528e or 535i?

    It is a m 20, not a Ferrari. I would make sure the cylinder is at TDC with the valves closed. Then I would tap the hole for a heli-coil. Then use a vacuum or compressed or canned air to blow out the chips. If you coat the bit and the tap with grease,you'll catch a lot of chips too. What remains wil burn up and go out the exhaust. Make sure you get the helicoil kit for a deep reach plug.
