Hi!I was putting my Columbia 28" snowblower to bed today (serial# XXXXX 31BE9B6G597). I had the spark plug out to clean and re-gap; when replacing it I overtorqued it and stripped threads from the manifold head. Can the hole be re-tapped and a different (and compatible) spark plug used. No metal fell into the the unit (that I can tell).Who is the nearest service dealer in Ottawa (or region - I bought this near new from an acquintance). Will they do that or they going to tap me for a new manifold? Help!Thanks!Laurence Elliott

Hello how are you
You have two options. You can either replace the head or heli coil it.
here is a video on the heli coil process

This sort of tells me what I suspected already. I thought this site was connected to the manufactuer of the unit and I could get specific service references since I won't be doing the work. Thanks for the help anyway
