I need to clean up some threads on a couple of parts and would like to verify what they are before I do it.
Front axle sleeve (43882-48) looks like 13/16 x 24
Fuel shut off seat (62075-50) small end looks like 1/2x24 and the large end 3/4 x 18
Oil tank male nipples (62504-38) looks like 3/8 x 18 NPT
Any help would be appreciated

I measured the fuel shut off seat as:

Large end: 3/4 x 18
Small end: 1/2 x 20

Are you sure about 1/2 x 24?

Sorry I couldn't measure the other items....

Steve,
you're right , it is 1/2 x 20. The treads were just trashed enough to not let the die go on but I checked the gas line and it was 1/2 x 20.
Once I got it started it cut cleanly and the gas line fits tight.
Thanks for the catch
CJ
