If you know the thread size you should be able to re tap it with no problems. Just use some good thread sealant when you plug it back up. I wouldn't think you would need a heli coil kit.

What's the difference between tapping it to using a heli coil kit?

When you tap it you just retrace original threads(pretty much clean them up). Heli coil you drill, tap then insert coil. (pretty much when threads are destroyed) if my threads were that bad I'd tap one size larger and get one size up plug. I think you would be fine just tapping. Make sure to undo hose directly beneath (shavings will fall) and when you tap make sure to hold firm pressure and keep tap straight up(slowly is better).. Hope this helpful.
