96 zx750p float bowl drain plug leak

I have the responsible float bowl off of the carb and in my hand. thorough cleaning and still leaks when filled with carb cleaner. took another drain plug off one of the other carbs that doesn't leak and tried it on this one. still leaks. Can I buy a new bowl. I may have over tightened the drain plug and now it leaks. what can I do?

Using permatex gas resistant sealant to seal the cracks. hopefully that works
