I have a Husqvarna 353 with stripped muffler bolt threads. I have been advised that using a helicoil would be most effective in fixing this. Before I go shopping I thought I might find out from someone what size bolt that is and what the thread pitch is? Anyone know?

Your local tractor store will have a bolt size and thread pitch guage.
You could also JB weld a stud and use nuts.

Thanks for the advise. Up here in the Sub Arctic we do not have tractor stores. But I am running down to the local industrial hardware store to see what they have. NAPA car parts has a kit for $50, but I'm looking for a cheaper price.
