Still contemplating whether i should let a mechanic break his back over this or i should spend my sunday in the garage..
Get the whole tapped for a larger plug and use a larger plug. This is what I did on my old Ford Probe - it worked fine. Sure I was nervous it would not work and all the oil would come out, but it lasted years. Much easier than a new oil pan.
