    Use a lot of grease on the tap to catch the filings. Cut one or 2 turns then remove the tap and clean and re grease

    Also, by using this type, no need to worry about a tang dropping inside the cylinder. Just use plenty of grease on the tap to catch the swarf.

    And there is no chance of the insert working its way down through the head and dropping into the combustion space

    Hi Adam.

    I had the same situation with my 1968 CL175. I purchased a Time-sert thread insert kit. It comes with all the special necessary tools and 6 inserts of different lengths.
    It worked really well, and I did not need to remove the head. High quality tool, but expensive at $155 USD.
