Fuel bowl rebuild issue

I rebuilt my fuel bowl last night but when reinstalling the drain one of the four screws is somewhat stripped. It will still tighten decently but what can I do to help it seal better? Rtv high temp silicone? Retap hole for slightly larger screw? What are your suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

If it'll tighten somewhat and it's not leaking, I'd just leave it as is IMO. Wen I rebuilt mine the other day I had something similar happen with my bowl heater screw but all works as it should

I'm putting it back in tonight so that's why I was seeing if there was anything I could do while it's still out to prevent me from putting it back in to see if the seal is good, then worse case find out it's still leaky and have to pull it out again.

You won't have to pull it again, you can get to the drain valve while its attached.
