You have to use the tap that comes with the Time Sert or Helicoil kit and those will contact the flywheel. Only a bottoming blind hole tap would work and I don't know if they're available in that size.

Idealy there should be no crankcase pressure, should be vacuum.

Another thing you could try would be a pipe plug, they've got tapered threads and might get tight enough.
