Default Stripped thread

Today I have attempted to do an oil change for the first time since owning my PT. To my horror, When I tried to remove the sump drain bolt it kind of cracked then just spun. I managed to get it out but it seems a previous owner had stripped the thread and just glued the bolt back in.

Being as it's Sunday there's not a lot I can do about it today, but do you think it would be possible to have the thread in the sump repaired or am I looking at having to buy a new sump?

Whatever you do, plan to do or have done, there's always people that have done it before you and will be doing it after you. You only have to know where to look.
