Try and straighten hole a bit by small drill first?
Yes the engine side it clear so I can put a bolt but the hard part is to get a straight hole. The back of my drill is already up against the transmission well which prevents me from getting it nice and perpendicular. I was even thinking about using a helicoil if I can get it drilled out nicely.
