This kit is not recommended for holes larger than .663" (16.8mm). See the Time Sert 5600 for holes up to .73". Or if you already have the 5553 kit and would like the add on kit that works with the 5553 to install the triple oversized insert see the Time Sert 5588

The 5553 thread repair kit is used for repairing failed spark plug threads over the fender. This kit was originally designed for the Ford Escort, that shows how long this kit has been around. Now the 5553 thread repair kit is primarily used on Ford 4.6 and 5.4 engines Triton and InTech DOHC's. The kit is also used on many other applications that use a tapered Metric 14 x 1.25 spark plug. The drill bit also called a reamer, is a step design that perfectly cuts a centered hole every-time even in hard to reach areas. Because of the unique stepped design there's no need for a line up adapter for multiple applications. The tap is also a stepped design that will guide straight in without and adapter like some competing brands require. 

Check to make sure the valves are closed without removing the valve cover with the optional 389-4000 Leak Tester.

*Note fully threaded spark plugs require a different insert in addition to this kit. The 51457 is the most popular fully threaded one which is 16.8mm long with a taper seat (requires 51484A to be used on setting tool). They are sold separately.

The Time Sert 5553 works on many Ford engines, since many use the M14x1.25 taper seat spark plug. Also because of the method that Time Sert uses to align the reamer, which is stepped tooling that works the same on any spark plug hole. It doesn't require a special line up adapter. It is the first choice for Triton engines which are 2 Valve. It also works on any M14x1.25mm spark plug hole. Here's a partial application list of Ford engines; 1.6, 1.9, 2.0, 2.3, 2.5, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, 4.0, 4.2, 4.6, 5.4, 5.8 and 6.8 that have TAPERED seat M14x1.25 spark plugs.

    1.5 hours start to finished threads with no drama.
    Highly recommended for a permanent thread repair.


  3. Tried the Helicoil 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2015

    This kit worked fine, fixed the problem that the Heli Coil couldn't.


  4. Joined the sparkplug blowout club unwillingly 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    Had no idea this was a problem until mine blew and a googled the problem. Guess I'm the most recent member in the Ford spark plug blow out club. At least the Time Sert fix took care of it.


  5. Recomended Over Other Kits - Would Not Use Any Other 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2015

    This kit was great and will recommend to all.


  6. Fixed Sparkplug Hole when Helicoil Couldn't 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2015

    Used a cheap Heli Coil that failed. The 5553 Time Sert kit worked perfectly. Fixed my threads with confidence this time. Great tool kit easy to use.


  7. Very easy to use with step by step directions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2015

    Very nice tool. Used on Ford 2001 4.6. Recommended my friend to buy the Time Sert for the Caddy North Star head bolts, that also worked great.


  8. An engineering marvel! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2015

    First let me say that this product works like a charm!!! I'm confident that the repair is as good (if not better) than anything the Ford dealer could have provided.

    I love my old 97 F-150 5.4 and had never heard of blowing out a spark plug, but recently joined the ranks of those who have experienced it first hand.

    It seemed impossible to fix without replacing the head, but after an extensive search of the web I came across some of the videos that Dennis put together on how to use the Time-Sert products. The videos sold me on the fact that I could do this myself without tearing the engine apart.

    I appreciate you guys going the extra mile and providing those videos, the great customer service, and the best price anywhere!


  9. Great product, Saved my engine. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2014

    Product was very well organized and put together well. Extremely easy to understand laminated instructions. Saved my engine.
