reading around the web, this seems to be a common and serious problem. I found it in the 2014 one I bought.
Mine hadn’t broken the inside structure yet, though one side was cracked.
I installed a 7/16x14 helicoil & made a plug for it with a urethane gasket.
Anyone here have that problem?

It’s the best I could think of. Don’t really like large pipe plugs in aluminum. It’s stronger now than new, with stainless steel threads, Only drawback is I’ll leave @1/2” of oil in that area when I drain it. Probably @ a pint, but these things have huge oil capacity for their displacement & I change frequently.
