Thanks for the responses guys. I was able to take the carb to a quality machine shop and have the threads straightened. They had to order a tap, but it did the trick. They even gave me the tap for a charge of only $20. Man was I happy! As for the replacement screw and o-rings I just ordered them yesterday from and my velocity stacks from Hope to tackle the second carb this weekend and have the parts sometime next week so I can try to install them the following weekend. I will say through this experience a suggestion to the makers of the rebuild kits would be to identify the locations for the given size of o-ring. This is not so clear.  I will let you guys know how the remainder of this mini-project goes.
