Hey guys, i have a little problem here with my gas tank, i chose to post it here instead of the specific model forum to get more responses.

My problem is, one of the bolts that fastens the shroud to the tank was spinning in its thread, in the end decided to heat it and pull the entire thread out. It was a small rectangular bronze piece that had the thread within
On re-inserting this piece, we plastic welded it and it leaks gas, other attempts the same result
Next we put some cold well epoxy
And it still leaks

Are there any other suggestion on how to stop this leak?
Buying a new gas tank is out of the question at the moment
