    Everyday is a new F---UP in the world of my 14 bolt build. Today, it was the threads on the spindle. They are boogered up at the end and I cant get the nut back on. I ground off about 1/16" off the end trying to get rid of the problem threads. Didn't work. I'm thinking about grinding off more as theres a little room to work with there. I figured I'd ask the experts for some advice first. So, anyone have any ideas? Thx

    Call around and find a machine shop that can re-thread it for you. It is really the only correct way you are going to be able to fix it.
