I'll do it myself
I did everything I think I'm supposed to do. I did use a paste flux and a flux coated filler wire. The cracks I got in the pan are called, based on what I read, liquid metal embrittlement. I think I got the pan metal too hot. Thanks for all the information.

Keep heat primarily on the plug not the pan and heat evenly

I checked on the bolt in drain plugs. The reviews weren't so good. People complained about leaking and the plug pulling apart as they were being tightened. Plus, the bolt in type stood up higher inside the oil pan thus allowing more fluid to remain inside the pan.
