Over tightened transmission mount bolt

well i was tightening my TH400 mount to the crossmember and "pop" the bolt falls loose. shreds of metal in the threads. has anyone ever used a tap and die set on a trans case? can i sleeve it? Im trying very hard not to freak out right now ive been dealing with this swap for 3 months now and i just want to drive my friggin truck.
Do i tap it to a bigger size bolt?
