I stripped the threads that hold my cylinder head cover in place on the camshaft holder/retainer. I tried helicoil and it didn't go in right. I drilled that out and tried time-sert, but the hole was too big at that point. Time-sert doesn't make a Big-Sert for 7mm (why the hell not?). So I think I'm stuck looking for a new part.

I'm fully aware that the cylinder head is manufactured and sold as one piece with the camshaft holders, however I've also read of people swapping these out without any negative impacts.

If I can get just the holder, awesome. However, I'm willing to buy the entire cylinder head if someone is selling one.

This is for my 2003 naked SV.

Thanks and greatly appreciate any help out there.
