What about a heli-coil insert? If I understand your circumstances that would seem to be the easiest solution if you haven't removed too much material. Inserts require you to drill oversize anyways or you could possibly step up a bolt size in order to fit the insert if you have removed a lot of material. Worth a look.

Over the years I've done several for Hondas. The "B" and "D" motors were especially bad for this. AL block, AL tranny, steel bolt. Bolt would corrode the threads and strip them when separating the engine and tranny. Heli coil insert worked like a charm every time and lasted the life of the vehicle.
