I'll look into the different sockets theory. I thank you all very much for the quick responses.

This one is the same as Timesert but do eat come with the price tag I have used it in one of the work trucks, it has 30k+ miles on the fix.

Yes, that is the identical type of thread repair that I bought.
I'm pleased to know that it is a proven system.
Now... I'm thinking about using a Makita saw with a metal cutting blade to grind down the tap to a smaller socket. That's assuming that a different socket brand won't work. Fingers crossed. (While I can cross them, saw might take one or two.)

Definitely not the same as Time-Sert.
If I had to do it over again knowing what I know now I would still spend the money for the Time-Sert kit. It has better quality inserts with more and better quality tools.
And the instructions included with the kit are foolproof.

YEESSS!!! I didn't lose any fingers. I grinded half of the tap to a 5/8. Moving forward to the next step soon as the weather allows.
