Dose anyone know the thread size to tap for the spindle hole thread repair kit that Lang's sells? The parts come with no instructions.

Ed, that kit requires the use of the stevens tool. no one is reproducing the tool that I know of. I use heli coils of the proper size to repair the threaded portion unless they are worn to much then I set it aside and dig up a better axle. I think Dan Hatch makes the repair kits maybe he will chime in and give you more info. KGB

If you mean the king pin thread at the lower axle hole...it is 1/2-20. The thread repair kit (helicoil) is another matter.

Ed: Thread size is 5/8-24. I make the reamer/tap that threads the axle hole. PM me for more info. Dan
