Trying to fix stripped caliper bolt hole
I am working on fixing my front driver side caliper bolt hole that was stripped. I bought all of the pieces of the black magic knuckle saver kit locally because I need to knock it out this weekend. I drilled out the bad hole with a 27/64 drill bit and then tapped it to 1/2"-13 but the M8x1.25 threaded inserts are too small for the hole I tapped. Any advice or am I going to have to replace this whole damn knuckle since I've already drilled it?

They are designed for through holes and the helical wire versions are best in blind holes.
