Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Thread size for commutator swivel?

I am trying to thread the end of a commutator rod to accept the swivel. As close as I can tell itís 12 x 32.
That die is not in any of my tap and die sets, so it is somewhat none standard and could be wrong.
Does anyone know the correct thread size ?

Why is everyone so hesitant about going to the parts books for info?
7/32x32
Just thousandths of an inch off 12-32

Mark, thanks for the thread.
In reading the whole thread, the size should actually be 7/32-32 which is very close to the 12-32.
Now I have to find the correct die.
