A #3 Phillips will work the best. Because it is a four bladed, versus the flat tip, you'll have more contact area. Also, the heat thing sounds like it has some potential, and the #3 will conduct better...and maybe a drop of penetrating oil?...And if worse comes to worse, an Easyout (a reverse threaded, tapered tap) may be in order
