damaged thread

Ok I messed up!

 

Somehow I managed to damage the thread in the float bowl for the drain screw.  I must have put it in cross threaded.  I the drain screw itself is damaged but more worryingly is the thread inside the bowl.  Any suggestion what to do?

Rob

I'm sure the thread size will be a standard metric one of some sort. If the thread will clean up that's half the battle. As long as the seat that the screw tightens against is ok, a new screw oughta do it.

Thread is M6 x 0.75 A bit rare (normal M6 thread is 1mm pitch) but it exists. You need a plug tap to make sure the thread is correct all the way to the end - a taper won't do it.
Here's one: (or you might find an engineering place that has one AND a helicoil repair if the thread is beyond saving. (Helicoil set about 50 quid is a bit much for one little screw!)

Well found Simon!

For unobtanium taps, dies, etc, I use Tracy Tools. Next day delivery and never let me down. See here

The float bowl is worth saving as they also seem to be like unobtanium!  I have been trying to get hold of one to finish off a carb build for over a year now cry

Success!!

The thread bought the M6*075 plug tap. The internal thread cleaned up nicely. Fitted a new drain screw and spring from totally ttrs.

Thank you for all your help

Rob
