Carb Thread stripped

Hi - Just overhauled the carb, Rochester 4 barrel, on a 1971 Vette 350ci / 270HP. Also replaced fuel pump and line from pump to the carb. When installing the threaded end piece of fuel line from pump into the carb housing for the fuel filter the larger nut for fuel filter opening poped off and appears to have threads stripped inside because now that nut will not stay in a secured position. Probably softer aluminum threads of carb filter housing stripped at some point. Is there anything that can be done besides buying an entire new Carb? Has anyone else run into this problem?
