I'm a mod over at raptortranny, great site but not a whole lot of postings.

Heli coil is probably your best bet, most fastner and machine shops will have what you need.

Yeah when I bought my rappy I became a member of raptortranny.. I got a lot of good info from the site but it has slowed down alot... What size are the holes for the heli coil for the bolts that hold the side cover onto the engine block??? Also where would i find the info on the clutch install??? Thanks Maddog56..

Can't remember off hand the specs of those bolts, but it can be found in the service manual as can the instructions for a clutch replacement.

If you don't have a service manual you can find one online at sandwizards.com in the tips and tricks section.

Fastenal carries "recoil" thread inserts. They will have what you need on the shelf. The kit doesn't include the drill but they sell those also. You may shop around as fastenal is a little pricey
I think the side cover bolts are m6x1.0, but verify this before you buy any kit. You might also ferify the depth of the holes, not that you end up with inserts that are to long, or some that could be longer.
