oil cooled cam cover stripped thread repair

i just bought the 7mm helicoil kit (go to any auto tool supply, and wait for the blank look when the chart doesn't even list 7mm)

these are good to repair the thread on the cam caps that the cam cover bolts threads into.
they are 7mm on oil cooled and probably others, the stock threads are made of fudge!!
(as you know these caps are line bored for your cams are not replaceable)

any ways, i will fix them for canadian members for $10 a cap, drop off or mail (you pay shipping, $2-$4)
i am just recouping cost of kit
