Before drilling be sure to put tape over the intake ports. It would be best to use a 'drill stop' to control the depth of the drill. But seeing as how opened up the hole is ... you should be able to 'sense' when to get to the bottom (in the form of additional resistance). I would not push very hard, just be sure to hold the drill straight or use a 'drill block'.

Once you tap the hole with the heli-coil tap. Clear the chips and as an option you can add some blue Loctite to hold the heli-coil in place once installed. The heli-coil should be about 1 thread below the surface before you break the tang. This will help prevent the coil from being dislodged and will also keep the coil threads in good alignment to start your stud. I guess you can add Loctite to the stud as well.
