Subject: [CR]Pedal thread repair

A recent poster (I'm not sure who it was, sorry) mentioned thread repair epoxy and inserts for repairing pedal threads. Two questions;

How does one use thread repair epoxy? Does it have limitations or a short life expectancy?

Is it possible to buy left hand pedal Helicoil (or someone else's) inserts? I would have thought 9/16" x 20 left threaded an odd size and not available. I'm guessing that they wouldn't be cheap.

Anyone?
