    Helicoil a stripped out spark plug

    My #4 spark plug blew out, and sure enough it is entirely stripped, and noticeable larger than #3 and #5 holes. I don't want to pull the head to repair it, and am considering helicoiling it in place. From looking at other posts it looks doable. Anyone helicoil a stripped out plug hole with the head in place?

    Update-fixed

    Fixed it today, put 30 miles on it and good so far. I used a kit called Time-Sert Spark Plug repair. Similiar to a helicoil, and they have an extended reach version that let me repair the threads with the valve cover and head still on.
