    Your probably going to have to hunt around for one. I was looking for the 7/8-18 LH tap and it took awhile to locate it. Kennyw hooked me up with a cool guy that had a set of the 7/8 taps. 1" is going to be even harder to find since they are a specialty automotive tool only. When I checked into getting a tap made, it was going to more than $200 /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif PM kenny, he might have a hook up /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Might not cost too much to bring it to a machine shop and have them tap it, then again it might. Know anyone with a lathe, who knows how to use it? What is the size of the tube that you need to tap? Are you building your own tie rod? I wonder if it would be feasible to thread up a bunch of "sleeves" left handed, that could be welded in later. Just thinking out loud....

    We have a RH tap where I work but nw LH tap. Woodys 4x4 in Vancouver has one they said they would tap them for $30. If I can't borrow one then I guess that is my best option. They have the tapered remears I need for my steering arms too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif To bad there so pro-J**p
