    Intake nipple thread size

    Hi all. I am after some help identifing the thread size for the intake nipples on a 45 if any one could help me please. I have measured the pitch at 20tpi and nipple thread ,the one that screws in the barrel, and get 1.365". The nearest imperial thread size is 1-23/64 @ 1.3594 and 1-3/8 @ 1 .3750 . 20tpi in this size makes it cycle thread or UNS.Just want to clean treads so could use a tread cleaner but wanted to do a proper job. Many thanks in advance.
    Cheers Leigh

    Managed to get a tap 1-3/8 -20tpi UNS, not cheap but good tools never are.

    I would have used a used nipple with a groove filed in it before using any tap because of the chance of taking more material away than needed.I like tight threads on inserts if possible.

    Hi Duffy. Had to repair the thread area, and there was too much to repair using a thread chaser or using your method . I have used that method on glacier bushes just to remove a small amount. The tap seemed the only good option. Thanks for your reply and input.
    Cheers Leigh
