Oil pump bolt pull out

Ok so I am slowly rebuilding my first engine, a basicly stock 454. I am at thr point of mounting the new oil pump and the retaining bolt "pulled out" ot the top of the rear main cap. It looks to have only gotten the top 2 threads. Apparently the new pump has a shorter mounting height and I did not check this. There is now a small "crater" on the top of the threaded hole. Is this some thing i should worry about or can I put a stud in and not worry so much?

Thanks for any advice.

Mike
