Your helicoil kit should have come with proper drill and tap for the insert. That being said, A good machine shop may be able to use a sleeved type thicker insert to salvage this hole if they can't get a helicoil in it. But this may not be cost effective. Would have to get estimate and compare against top end kit with cylinders.

Just a little update. Decided to tear into the hull, might paint it, definitely painting the cover and hood. Pads and glue removed. Pictured are my weapons of choice. PB Blaster worked the best with proof. Not pictured, small "crow" bar used to scrape pads off.
