Re-tap the hole and buy a new plug, but make sure it's brass. Dissimilar metals won't let the plug rust in place. Also, use anti-seize on it. The plug will be tapered if it's NPT, so you don't need...

#1, at the crank end of the engine? Do a vacuum test and if possible, leak-down, too.

Silicone causes problems if paint or other finishes are to be used, but it doesn't really affect much else. WD40 or any other petroleum-based lube can cause rubber to break down. It's OK on metal...

They should include a clause for different price levels- if it's a flat percentage, you're going to be hosed if the price shoots up. Higher tax at lower price/lower tax at higher price would make for...
