    Not surprised that you can not find a new head considering the Tecumseh that built that engine has been out of business since 2009.
     
    Two options.
    • Purchase an used head off eBay or
    • Have a helicoil installed in the current head.

    Here's one option:

    Just about any automotive parts store should stock something like this. Job can be done with head on engine 90% of the time. One tip is to coat the tap with grease to hold on to the chips that come off during the taping process.

    Hmmm Time-serts. Must be newer design that don't require a countersink. I will check them out next time I am by Autozone.
