are you positive its stripped? I know I thought the front right hole was stripped because the stud stook out farther than the rest, but its supposed to be like that.

Hit up a machine shop they should be able to retap it for you
if its stripped its going to have to be heli-coiled. you cant re-tap a stripped hole to the same size, it would end up bigger. id try to helicoil or just get another block

yeah it sucks but at least it didnt blow out on you once the engine was running which would have been alot worse

i thought there was a helicoil in the hole sideways so i didn't give it any thought until i went to put the head on then i relized the threads broke off and were in there sideways

I have used plenty of helicoil kits on numerous cars and they have done fine but that was usually something for a exhaust stud or something. I know plenty of people that use them in blocks and stuff but I don't know if I would do that personally.

If you got mad skills or know somebody that does you can always fill the hole, drill it and re-tap it with the stock size stud. I had a buddy that did that for me on numerous vw blocks that were magnesium/aluminum alloys.
