Angry Oil housing nightmare...stripped threads :(

As the title states i've stripped the threads on the top piece of my engine oil housing. Long story short i was stupid (i blame it on a faulty torque wrench) and now had to re-thread one of the holes...problem is i'm now leaking more than ever.

Anyone want to offer some advice?

I've got a couple options but just wanted some advice/help from the local guys.

Should i refill the hole and re-thread to the proper size? If so anyone know where i can find an affordable shop that does aluminum welding?

Or should i just stick with it and try and seal the leak?

Thanks in advance
