Now, if you're going to try to get a non tapered screw to create a seal, or a non tapered crub screw, than you aren't going to get a seal. A tapered screw or plug will almost seal on its own.

If that little grub screw is loose fitting you might need to try to find a larger screw, possibly the screw is on the small side of tolerances, and the hole is on the large side (even without damage this can make a hole difficult to plug)

Good luck!
I will try the 565 first, it looks like it had a locking/sealant in it begin with...it was a bit of an experiment, the identical thread grub on the other side of the body i could not remove, it really needs to sit flush with the body as a cover plate then goes over it.

cheers
