Does anyone know if dies are available anywhere for the LH and RH threads of the T front axle spindles?

Sure, they're 3/4"-16 according to: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/Bolts_nuts_threaded_items-148079.pdf

China import RH thread $8.99: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-4-16-Right-hand-Die-3-4-16-TPI-/110768584029
USA RH thread $20.79+ shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DIE-3-4-16-NF-RTYRD-HEX-ACE-HANSON-ORIGINAL-WORCESTER-MA -USA-/160989733603
"Quality import" LH thread $13.99 + shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-4-16-LEFT-HAND-CARBON-STEEL-HEXAGONAL-RE-THREADING-DIE -/300924598791

Maybe a thread file is enough to fix your threads?

Here is a link to KBCtool page that has both dies in "el cheapo" (Model T owner junk grade) price range. Should do one or two spindles.

Kenny,

Check the thread pitch. I believe they are 3/4 inch NF threads. That means the right hand die is easy to find, the left hand die is a little tougher to locate.

Snap-on sells real quality thread files. One file will have 8 different thread pitches. And they will work RH and LH

The brand name of the thread files I've always used was "Rimac". High quality product.

Mike.

I wanted to update this post with P/N's I found at Grainger. The 3/4" 16 pitch LH thread is 10N641. The RH version is 19T178.
