How do you size a helicoil?

Drill out the damaged threads using the drill supplied in the kit. Drill to a sufficient depth to accommodate the insert length and the bolt or screw being used. Tap the hole using the Heli-Coil tap supplied in the kit. Check the size on the shank of the tap to be sure it is the right size.
