So, I have a 1.6L gasser, i'm replacing all the little brown injector sleeves ( holders, bungs, retainer or any other name) that screw into the cylinder head. The Cylinder heads threads on one of injector ports is partially jacked up. I'm looking for the Metric size so i can try to thread chase it and try to clean it up a bit. I have narrowed it down to probly a M24 x 1.5 I know the pitch is 1.5 for sure but can' confirm the metric size. Anyone have any ideas?

i updated this in a couple of other threads too. I can confirm it is a M24-1.5 hole that accepts the injector sleeve. I got a $13 M24-1.5 tap on ebay and it worked great to chase those threads. Using a heat gun when removing broke/ stuck pieces of the sleeve helped a ton. Also, make sure the chamber is super clean when done. I vacuumed and used an air compressor to blow out any debris that may have escaped my attention. Started right up! Now I just need to fix the issue of not being able to idle or warm/hot restart.
