...is me. I am very pleased with Peter's repair to my 19S head. He made a bronze insert, threaded internally and externally, pinned to the head.

RGM do a Helicoil for the exhaust threads.  Much stronger as it removes the minimum of the porous original casting.  The problem is that Roger is snowed under with work as he no longer has a workshop assistant.

Another thing to try is to wrap the threaded collar with aluminium foil to pack it out.  You can get the sticky-backed stuff, but the glue will melt and may make a mess!
