Heli Coils are stainless steel, so shouldn't have any problem.  I have used
them in every imagineable place on an engine and had great success.  Just
take your time and make sure the hole and new threads are good and straight,
and to size........not elongated or anythng.

Looks like this might be a bit off topic these days, but I have an engine

Does anybody know if it is "safe" to remove the three panhead screws
holding on the little plate (and the plate) located just below the manifold
(on the side of the block), just above the oil pan?  I have an oil leak
here, and would like to replace that gasket, but I don't what to get
into trouble.

Even better, can anyone recommend a good reference book for the 216 engine.
 You know, something with exploded parts views, etc.

Also, The manifold studs were all corroded, and broke off (what a pain),
is it recommended to use helicoils in an exhaust manifold, or would the
heat create problems?
