Measure from the face of the sealing surface down the hole to just past the drain passage (use a piece of wire as a gauge and measure that).  If 9.4mm isn't long enough, plug the passage with a steel ball as per this link:

thank you, was trying to leave it put together without disturbing the short helicoil thats in there, guess i will get the kit with 9.4mm and order couple of the next size longer also.

the 9.4 is too short, go with the 12mm
