Dealing with a case stud under the stator that stripped out the engine case. Options seem to be helicoil or JB WELD.

Cylinder studs are way more straight forward...anything special about these short studs under the stator? And I assume I have to split the effing case again?

There is a 3rd option. Time-sert.

A far more permanent and durable solution than a spring insert (helicoil).

Granted the Time-sert is more expensive, but considering where this thing has to live it is the best option IMO.

JB Weld is amateur hour solution.
