In the process of replacing the jets in my R50/2, I went to put the plug in the right hand side idle jet, and realized that all the threads have been worn away! Without the gasket I can get it to seat, but with the gasket washer it just spins!

Anybody have a simple fix, or failing that a more complex fix? I assume I could find a machinist who could build up the bore and cut new threads? Time-sert? Aluminum carb bodies and steel threads haven’t mixed very well over the years.
