    Are the threads stripped or the screw head? Could you run the next size tap in it, a bottoming tap ? Just have to clean it out real good.
    Or maybe a self tapper close in size. I personaly wouldnt buy a used oil pump.

    You cant get it loose or cant get it tight? I would get a new screw if you can get the old one out. In the past I have ran a tank of premix for the first tank and didnt even bleed that screw, it worked fine. Def. dont think you need a new pump... Im sure someone else will chime in.

    If you can get the screw out, and the threads are good, I have a screw I can send you.

    The bleeder screw only bleeds the line coming from the tank to the pump... You can do that by popping the hose slightly off... Just run pre-mix until you see all the oil lines primed and you'll be good to go.
