As for the oil plug, I'd first try and tap it with the correct size tap.

Otherwise I've always used a time-sert when j get a stripped out drain plug. It's sort of like a helicoil but permanent.
Considering the neck is a press fit item, I wonder if trying a new neck might do the trick?

$42 for one on e-bay....

As for tapping the oil drain hole in the block, if the bolt takes a 17mm socket, am I to assume from the chart that it is an M12 bolt? What thread pitch?

Just another tip.... after you tap the new threads very slowly pour a quart of cheap oil through the engine just to be sure you flush out any shavings from tapping.

Godfather - J-ROB is ahead of ya . . . ( see post #9 )

Has anyone tried to swage/stretch the old oil tube? A small pipe expander, like used for exhaust tubing. Cheaper than a new tube, would satisfy not using jb weld, could be made to custom fit. May need a little heat during expansion.
My 2 cents

That's a good idea, where would I find something like that?
