Pretty similar to the kit I use.  If they don't work, then I weld the plug whole shut and drill/tap a new hole.

Same one I have used in alloy boat motors and snowmobile heads.
Have not had to try it a chainsaw yet. But see no reason it wouldn't work fine.

Sounds better then just a helicoil is what I was thinking.

The problem with chainsaws is the reach or thread length is not great enough for a regular HeliCoil
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

There are 3 different lengths of inserts there.

Good to know. Have you ever used that kit or do you just weld yours up?

I've used the save-a-thread version before. I only weld them when I really need to.
