Broken bolt in the Timing chain cover

I am a newbie to PSDs, I just bought my first a week ago. 2000 F350 crew cab dually, 7.3, 6sp manual, 4:11s. The PO told me about a broken bolt that was allowing fluid to leak out. He thought it was fuel. I searched on here and the internet just to find out what the parts are called so I would sound like an idiot trying to describe where it is leaking. The block off plate on the timing chain cover, beneath the Hpop Reservoir and behind the EBP sensor has the bolt on the driver's side broke off. Picture provide.

I talked with a mechanic and he said drilling, tapping and a helicoil would fix it. If it can be drilled without messing up the alum. housing. Or does anyone have a better idea? What I am wondering is how much trouble/expense is it if the timing chain cover ends up having to be replaced?

That is the HPOP gear cover.

Replacement cover, however, not sure how to fix the issue.

I'm going to be honest...that SUCKS that some rook reefed on that bolt. To remove the stud properly you will have to remove all the front coolers and grill to center punch, drill and extract.

After some investigating I have found that this plate is on the timing chain cover. I am an Aircraft Mechanic so I should be able to manage this repair. But I am worried about that the PO may have attempted to repair this all ready and boogered it up. And if it is not be repairable at this point, the timing chain cover may need to be replaced. From what I found the labor books call for 19hrs of labor to replace the timing chain cover? Do you really have to R&R the entire motor to change the timing chain cover?

yup....part of the cover goes down under/behind the oil pan. And to remove the oilpan, gotta remove the motor...fyi, its called a front cover. No timing chain on these motors
