Default Cam chain tensioner bolts

On my 83 750, I noticed that there is a bit of oil dripping from the cam tensioner bolt. I tried tightening it, but it feels like its stripped. I would like to try putting a slightly longer bolt in to see if it will grab some good thread. The question I have is, if I take the top tensioner bolt out, will the tension stay in place? I'd hate for it to shift and not be able to align the new bolt up.

Just keep the lower bolt tightened.
About grabbing healthy thread,possibility is low.
But worth to try.

I wouldnt go to much longer on the bolt, 2mm tops, even that may be too long.

try adding a little sealant Hondabond HT, or permatex gray around the sealing washer as well.

I took the bolt out today and it apears to be a special bolt. I put some permatex on the bolt and washer, so hoperfully that will seal it enough.
