My thought is to use a 1/2" steel plate and shorter bolts and test torque all the locations to 50-60 ft-lbs (or the spec) and be sure nothing else is going to cut loose when I reinstall the head. I'm thinking I will run a tap into the two partially failed timeserts and then get a larger washer and use a 1/2" drive impact socket and thread a bolt into the partially failed timesert and pull it the rest of the way out by tightening down the bolt. Then I will decide about acquiring or renting the Big Sert tools to remedy things. Does this sound like a reasonable plan?
