The well centered hole I have drilled out to 3/8" almost to the edge of the block threads. I have tried to get a tap started, but not enough threads available yet to get it going.

Any suggestions for how to remove the remaining stud material? Drill out more to enable the 1/2"-13 tap to work? Drill out the holes enough to use some sort of thread insert?

Heat, lots of heat with the easy out.

Thank you for the pictures! We are getting ready to tear into our ‘35 F-20 and I’m nervous about getting it out back together with all its pieces. Lol
