Long story short, one of the black screws stripped out when being removed for a fuel pump install. I tried a new screw but it's not grabbing any threads. What would be your suggested fix?

I would first try a thread chaser (not the same as a tap) to see if you can clean it up sufficiently. Obviously you need to put a towel under it to catch any debris. If the thread is not good enough to clamp then you could put a screw in from the underside and then anchor from the top with a nut.

Subscribed... In for a potential fix incase I pull my threads out. The way my luck as been going definitely possible.

I would assume Heli-coil is the only option, but with the limited depth would take someone with experience to get it done.

With half a tank I did some spirited driving and didn't smell or see any leaking.
