It should be fine, he did a great job with the helicoil. Jb welding it to the block was unnecessary in my opinion.

I hope.
I made the comment that his helicoil looked great, but then if you look at the photos, his helicoil caused the bolt to go in very crooked.

OK, my curiosity got me over there reading most of those posts. I pray I never need to do something like this.

Me too. I read the whole thing to find out what would happen next.

Given his situation (high mileage, keep it going for 6 months), I think it's pretty ingenious. I think he made the right call to suck it up and make the best of the existing crooked hole to take advantage of the threads he had. I wouldn't drive it very far from home like that, though.

For me, I'm unsure of the power of JB Weld.
