Sorry jay, I don't know what size thread the drain plug is, but are you sure you need to helicoil it? If it's just a leak, is the washer the problem?

Get some ptfe tape and wrap it around the thread a few times then tighten it up, this should stop the leak.

Isn't there a 0.3mm bigger sump plug you can get to stop this happening? Bites into thread better, less likely to cross thread...
