Iam afraid a helicoil will not help in the situation.
You might try a spark plug extractor tool with a torch to heat it up a bit to help expand the threads. See if you have a local machine shop, Garruntee they run into this problem a lot.
If all else fails and no other good tips come in, that head comes off, and the ole saying goes “if you do one, do both”.

Take out the heat tubes and put a socket on the plug. Just grab them w a plier and wiggle them out.
