Anyone know where I can find a 10-32 heli-coil kit in the area? I've struck out locally.

Try Grainger? If not them, you can order one from McMaster-Carr and it will arrive in one day. Or drive down there if it's an emergency (and Grainger didn't have it).

The hole for the bolt that holds the choke cam/linkage was stripped out on the rear carb.

Car also has new CA plates.
