1: get a new barrel adjuster from local shop, try to thread it in. if it goes, great...
2: this failing, the same local shop, if worth thier salt, have a thread tap the size of the "female" threads.
they can retap it, and reinstall a new adjuster. 20 bucks, maybe. failing all this, you can jam a new one in there, and install an "inline barrel adjuster", which work even better but are ugly and heavyish.
