another Kobalt compressor ?

I have a Kobalt K7060HFV and I just put a reed valve assembly on it. I decided to go ahead and change the oil but in doing so the case that the brass/copper drain tube screws into stripped out. It looks like they only had about 2 maybe 3 threads in the case and about 3/8" of thread on the brass tube. Go Figure..
Anyway, has anyone had this problem before and what did you do. I thought about just tapping it out a little larger and maybe just put a bolt in it. Anyone know what size threads is in the casing?
I will call the compressor people tomorrow but thought i would ask ya'll first.
Thanks for any help
