I would have thought Timsert of Helicoil were your options now?

COntact a machine shop or 3 and tell them the size and pitch you seek remedy for. Someone will have the ability and tools to fix this for you. Barring that it would seem an engine teardown is in store, weld up the hole and re cut the threads. Or, find a different set of cases :(
