How to get the solenoid screw tight (it is stripped)

[attach]48[/attach]Is there an insert or something I can use to tighten a screw that holds the solenoid valve to the body? I will attach a pic to show you what I am talking about

You may find you need to buy a new valve, and swap out the entire (bonnet) top cover.
