Steam vent radiator threads stripped


Went toi replace a steam vent at my father's and the threads on the radiator side are all worn out and stripped. I can't think of an idea to fix this. Maybe use JB Weld? Any ideas? Thanks.

JB is worth a try. Nothing to lose.
After that it's tap it larger pipe size and use a reducing bushing.
