I had a Kohler that would not hold the threaded elbow tight no matter how much I tried to tighten it. So I took the elbow out & the threads appeared to be all but gone. Looking closer, the threads were just caked in with carbon. I took a dremel with the little cutoff wheels & carefully ground all the threads clean all the way to the rear. The elbow went way back in & never came loose again. Likely you have a lot of thread back in there that you can't see or use unless they are cleaned out.
I did very much the same thing on my 1656 (H16) Bolens and when it was threaded back in,it went in 3 or 4 threads farther and has been fine since.
