mine were stripped. the plug would just spin and spin
used a helicoil kit. way easier and cheaper than new or changing the pan.
Just make sure you get the right thread. Its either metric something or BSP of some kind. It isn't NPT
edit: quick search says it is 1/4 BSP. It's one thread per inch difference from 1/4" NPT.
