Fixing Eblade solenoid housing

So, in the spirit of autocockers, my Eblade solenoid housing has one of the sets of treads stripped out of it. Basically rendering my Lotus useless except or looking pretty....

Now I don't want to go spending 40 bucks on people's USED and scratched housings, and I've yet to find a place to get E1 housings at a decent price. (Enlighten me if you know of such a place)

Anyways. Is there a way to fix the housing? Such as thread inserts or something. Obviously you can't just tap what isn't there to tap. I'm losing patience with this whole goddamn autococker deal! Ready to throw it out the window on the freeway. Help?!

Thanks guys

Alright let me know when you are planning on throwing and I'll be driving by to catch it.

And now something useful.

I don't have one in front of me but it would appear that eclipse used something small like a m1.6x.35 metric thread. The good news for you is that you can likely retap it with something like an m2x.4 or 2-56 if you have enough room for the screw. I can take some measurements on one of mine but this is what I'm thinking right now(currently at work).

Lmao will do.

And hmm. I guess I can try that. Nothing really to lose I suppose.

Any other ideas out there? You can't tell me there's only one person with one idea that wants to know these things...
