Stripped insert on fuel tank

I had the top insert spinning on the left hand fuel tank while stripping it down for some maintenance- The one the upper fairing secures to. It ended up coming out so now I need to get it back in and glue it in place. What is a good epoxy or something similar that can be used on the fuel tank? Any advice on how to get it back in? Thanks!

Someone in here used another approach.

He spun the whole insert with a drill inside its housing. As things got hot, plastic melted and then glued back.
Hope it helps.

The tank is fiber glass enforced nylon. Zip-ties are nylon. You could partially fill the hole with melted nylon, then heat the insert and .... insert.
