I was replacing my 3 link oil delivery pipe and the bolt towards the back on top of the clutch case stripped, not the actual bolt but the socket inside the motor. Where the bolt is suppose to tighten into. Not sure what it’s called but now I’m not sure what to do. Kinda don’t wanna take it to my shop if I can do it myself. Lmk what I should do. Thank you, if I can tmrw I’ll show a picture

You might be able to use a thread insert, but I'm fairly sure those require precise drilling and tapping. Basically drill out the damaged threads, tap it to a large size, then install an helical insert to bring it back to the original thread size and pitch to fit the OEM bolt.

Best to let a machine shop handle something like that since it's such a critical oil system component. I don't know if a shop could even do that work if you remove the clutch basket and bring the engine to them. You may have to send them some photos and ask around.
