Default Engine exhaust valve holes stripped

I have a used sled I purchased and after cleaning the power valves a couple of the holes where the short screws go (top & bottom) are stripped. Any suggestions on what to do to repair the holes? I could tap them and use a bigger screw or use a helical coil or there is an epoxy that loctite makes that you can remove the screws after it hardens. Not sure if it the temperature rating would be sufficient. Anyone else had to repair stripped holes in the aluminum block?
