If a stud has pulled out of the head can it be drilled out and a helicoil put in?

If so how much are we looking at ?

From Heritage or from me, mine are £3 incl P&P.

You said the stud 'pulled out of the head'. If it hasn't then you can still drill it out if it breaks.

WD40 isn't for that job, use Plusgas for seized threads.

Go to a Subaru dealer for gaskets, they're not dear. IRO £6 for the inlet manifold ones

Helicoils or Timecerts (better) are around £25 a pop at an engineering company
