I can't put my hands on my tap and die set, I want to give the threads a clean out before I put the heads back on.

The sump needed a tidied up after I treated it with acid a few weeks back. I have given it a couple of coats of black epoxy mastic.





This is the first I have used the replacement compressor to do any spraying so will be interesting to see what it looks like when the epoxy dries.

Get a bolt with the correct thread and stick it in your vise. Cut the bolt lengthways at an angle to create a flute in the bolt shank, turn it 2 flats and repeat for a quick and easy thread chaser.
