Spindle rethreading Tool Set

PN 010-00232


While you are disassembling your trailing arms frequently you will find the threads have been ruined by over torquing or careless workmanship You need to reach down into the triling arm and remove the cotter key, and 3/4-20 castle nut. Once these are removed the threads need to be repaired before the temoval tool can be installed. The 3/4-20 is a fine thread and not caried by hardware stores and your die handle will not clear the rest of the trailing arm. The solution is to buy the correct 3/4-20 die, a die handle and a die handle extension to all you to easily rethread the spindle.
