Stripped.. Why all the agony....

Why all this agony over one stripped stud? Why go to all the trouble of buying another engine that is of unknown quality? Why not fix the stud hole? Fit a bigger timesert? Why?

The below photos will show you the condition of the hole. I have yet to take a photo of the helicoil that came out of this hole. But as you can see it has made a mess. The advise from the bike shop was that they could not make the hole bigger to put a bigger timecert in. Looking at how much meat there is left between the stud hole and the opening for the cylinder I think they are right.





Shudder.....
