I suggest drilling and tapping the perimeter rather than drilling and tapping into the oil reservoir.

First, the bolts won't have anything to clamp directly on and second, will leak oil/water.

Should I use sealer or lock tight on bolts?

You don't need to plug those holes you already drilled, consider them pressure balancing holes.  Drill countersunk clearance holes for 10-24 on a 6.822 (Berkeley) or 6.913 (Dominator) bolt circle by no deeper than .625.  It won't really hurt anything if you break through.

Use anti-seize on SS bolts.

If you bolt through into the oil reservoir, you will need to seal the threads.  I would use Loctite.  Again, I recommend against doing it this way.

It's going to hit the impeller nut.  I put a 2.250 hole through the center.
