Pulled the head....found the problem.

the Snap wasn't the threads....it was the block. Have a hairline crack
running from the oil return at #1 cylinder left corner through the bolt hole
and to the water jacket port.

Welp, this block is done. BUT since I cannot afford another one right now
and I have nothing to lose, I'm going to try to JB weld it. Its not a high
pressure coolant system and the crack is only on the oil return, so not much
pressure there. What do I have to lose?
