I am going to buy a bolt thread repair file to take care of light thread damage. There are two available:
11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 24 TPI
9, 10, 12, 16, 20, 27, 28, 32 TPI
Will one of these take care of all the threads used on the Model T?
Get them both. Each has T threads the other doesn't. Just two examples are 24 for the wheel hubs and 32 for coil studs.
Will do. Thanks R.V.!
A few years ago I found those two files at a vendor in a swap meet, scrounged around his space and found a metric one which was even in the original box. $3 bought them all. I have used them a lot. It is one of those tools you think will be neat to have and you will never use... only to find lots of uses for them!
You can also use them as a thread gauge if you don't have one handy.
Marc, that's what I use my metric one for!
