Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. This is a tricky situation because most times trying to rethread it will only put metal shavings in the cylinder which will score the cylinder , the best was is to remove the head , clean whatever metal is in there and replace the head and head gasket , it's the safest way to avoid metal in the cylinder .
