More stripped oil cover bolts.

I have read several of the post about a stripped oil cover bolt, but can anyone tell me if simply installing a slightly longer bolt to catch the undamaged threads is possible. I tried a longer bolt and it tightens up great, but am concerned it might protrude into something more significant inside the case.


Anyone have ideas?

You should repair the threads properly.

When you say oil cover do you mean the oil filter cover? And I agree with William1. I usually heli coil them.
