Well, the title says it all.

Had to extract no.1 injector to cure a severe case of injector seal leakage. When I removed the bolt, half the internal thread from the bore came out with it.

Any ideas on how to get this sorted?

Looks to me like a case of drilling out the bore a few mm oversize and putting a thread insert in there. Trouble is I don't have the tools or skills for it. And I really don't want to pull the head unless I absolutely have to, so could really do with finding someone who not only knows what they're doing and has the right tools, but who is prepared to do the job al fresco on a Hackney side street.

All suggestions gratefully received.
