I screwed up my crank pretty bad. I sheared off a lot of material in the first 10-15mm of the crank snout. I need to get a helicoil in there so the bolt will grip in the beginining. where do i get them and how much are they?

the beginning of the hole is actually larger then the rest. The diameter of the first 15mm is a lot bigger, and there are no threads, its just smooth. wtf do i do:(

I used a Helicoil on my crank pulley. I think it was Metric 12 x 1.5 or 1.75 pitch. I bought stock bolts from Ford and everything worked perfectly after I drilled the crank out and inserted the Helicoil.
