You can drill it over sized and put a helicoil in. But you will need to remove the SC to do this and make sure no shavings get in to the LIM.

you can take carb cleaner and spray it on the vacumme hoses see where it may be leaking. Sounds like maybe though you have a seating problem with the blower
