Dropped the motor on my street car for hell hole rust repairs. As long as I had the motor out, thought I'd fix a few oil leaks, which I thought were mostly old push rod tube seals having given out. Just discovered the bolt that holds the oil pickup tube is stripped. That will definitely be a leaker too. The real fix for this is to of course split the case and heli-coil the stripped threads. Really didn't want to go there. Does anyone have any suggestions for a fix for this that DOESN'T include splitting the case?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
