The helicoil is a good quick fix. Be careful in the future to tighten, but not over tighten anything, especially when screwing into aluminum.

I am guessing it was probably not tightened enough, My spark plug socket was not actually deep enough, I ended up with a half-assed hand tightening since I could only get finger tips on it. We shall see, I am waiting on someone to tow it back here for me so I can look at it.

@metro - Thank you for the input. I will be doing more research about how I plan to tackle this.

@teleman - I am glad they did not put those engines on the P-3 Orions I used to fly on in the Navy lol.
