Sounds like you stripped the thread.

Is it on the sump or the turbo? Not sure which bit your talking about.

You would have stripped the beginning of the bolt thread. Without the drain fitting the bolt goes deep enough to engage the thread but doesnt with it fitted.

A slightly longer bolt might work. Otherwise you will need to put a helicoil in it or drill and tap a larger bolt hole and use a larger bolt.
