Just keep your fingers crossed it's not the one stud that also holds the oil pickup tube in place!

Learned today I have no business trying to tap threads in a magnesium block.... Bought the 7mm to 6mm replacement studs for the sump studs and just wallered the hole out with a cheap tap... I'm gonna have to take it to a professional now so I dont ruin the case... my luck stinks this week
