Better watch it over time. The case takes a lot of stress and it could spread the crack. Good luck with it!

If the tap tapers from the business end for a good inch until it shows full threads it's a taper tap. Plug taps (the intermediate) are not that common. Shorter taper.
Bottoming taps have full threads almost right to the end and look like bolts with the four sides grooved away. You want a taper tap. Grease to catch the chips is a good idea both on the tap and inside the hole.

Faced the same issue year ago.nox player for pcjiofi.local.html
I have recently purchased a 2008 KQ 450. It rolled over to 1000 miles so I changed the oil and filter. I noticed as I was taking the plug out it was very tight initially then it felt like it just gave and then it was very easy to turn. When I got ready to put the plug back in it never got tight at all. Almost no resistance screwing it back in. Now it's holding oil buy it has a very slow leak. In 4 days it has leaked maybe a half cup. So I'm really not wanting to tap it out. A guy at work told me to buy a new plug and it should work?

But the info is still relevant and helpful and interesting to see the repair process. And it's kind of funny to see an old thread come back from the dead.
