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

Maybe a thread file is enough to fix your threads?
Here's a recent forum thread about spindle threads: http://www.mtfca.com/cgi-bin/discus/show.cgi?tpc=331880&post=552018
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.
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.
Thanks guys, you've got me pointed in the right direction!
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.
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.
