I haven't taken one apart in years.  I remember the bracket straddles 
the rubber mount, and bolts up to the transmission.  Does the bolt going 
through the mount thread into the transmission, or threads on the bracket?

If it's the bracket that is threaded, replace it.  Should be someone 
here with a cheap spare.  If it threads into the tranny, that's a big 
PITA.  You probably have to do a helicoil to fix the threads.
