While you guys are here , This will be my first helicoil insert to a oil pan.. I am thinking to not break off the tab on the new thread coil as they say to do, but let the insert remain with the tab on. I don't think it should matter for this use. I do not think I would be able to get that little tab out. To have it in the oil pan, I do not think that's a good idea! Even though it should remain on the bottom. what is your opinion or correct procedure to do this.
