Same thing happened to this guy not long ago.

I believe he tapped it larger and put in a heli coil.
I don't think he has it all back together yet, so don't know how it will work.

I was going to do the helt coil, but i bought a longer bolt, because I noticed when i screwed the original bolt in without the tensioner, it actualy got tight further into hole. So hopfully I fixed it.
