It might be beyond his skill set, but another option might be to buy a 
good used pan from one of the vendors, along with a new gasket.  If he's 
got ramps or access to a lift, it's only 20 or so screws around the 
perimeter of the pan plus the gasket.  This approach would eliminate the 
stripped threads issue for the plug.

I bought the Clark's finned aluminum pan several years ago, but those 
might be too expensive for someone on a college budget ... I well 
remember what that's like.  Clark's lists a good used stock pan for $36.
