Default oil change problem

hi there just changed my oil this morning on my 1300, 71 bug and when i was doing up the six nuts that secure the oil strainer plate, one of the nuts was turning without tightening. great i thought, but it gets worse!!! the thread on the nut is fine and the thread on the stud is good but the thread in the botom of the engine case has been stripped!!!!!! ohhh fuk

so what do you recon is the best was to fix the thread????

i thought i could heli-coil it but im not sure if they will seal the oil???
or could i go to an M8 thread???

any help or advice would be greatly appriciated
cheers, andy

Studs are available that enable you to drill and tap the case to 8mm yet still retain the 6mm exposed stud. Probably most suppliers stock them, but if you have a problem finding some mail me.
I think the part number is N 014 478 1 (M8/M6x21)

When you consider there's been well over 120,000,000 of those standard studs made and regularly used over the years for every oilchange, 'common' becomes relative with the oversize ones.
Nearly all studs are available in an oversize form.
