I agree with Brian. But yes you can screw that fitting into your carb with no problem. I just wouldn't advise it.
Can't help with the threads on a Bolens carb but maybe you should try posting this on the Bolens forum along with a better description of the fittings you have. 316 stainless is compatible with aluminium as far as corrosion goes. I'm not sure why you would need to go to a SS fuel line. A rubber line is able to move and flex with engine vibration. A ss line could resonate and vibrate, work harden and then crack. I'm not sure it would be a good idea. That's just my initial take on it.

You could use a short section of rubber hose onto the metal hose to keep from shocking the metal.
