I think I'll do just that, tap it to an imperial bolt then try that route. What size would be the next one up from an 8mm metric bolt?
* 1mm = just over 1/32 inch
* 2mm = just over 1/16 inch
* 3mm = almost 1/8 inch
* 4mm = 5/32 inch (= a bit over 1/8 inch)
* 5mm = just over 3/16 inch
* 6mm = almost 1/4 inch
* 7mm = almost 9/32 inch (= a bit over 1/4 inch)
* 8mm = 5/16 inch
* 9mm = almost 3/8 inch
* 10mm = just over 3/8 inch
* 11mm = almost 7/16 inch
* 12mm = almost 15/32 inch (= almost 1/2 inch)
* 13mm = just over 1/2 inch
* 14mm = almost 9/16 inch
* 15mm = almost 19/32 inch
* 16mm = 5/8 inch
* 17mm = almost 11/16 inch
* 18mm = just over 11/16 inch
* 19mm = 3/4 inch
* 20mm = 25/32 inch
* 21mm = just over 13/16 inch
* 22mm = almost 7/8 inch
* 23mm = 29/32 inch
* 24mm = just over 15/16 inch
* 25mm = almost 1 inch

Also, can't you use a 90 [right angle] drill adapter; that should go in the available spacer easier, maybe not require any engine lift?
