With all this talk of Campagnolo crankset failures, I'm reminded that I need to chase the threads in my crank arms as well as clean up the threads on two sets of Campagnolo pedals.

So, silly me, I Googled Tap & Die sets. Lots of sets, nothing 9/16 x 20.

The closest thing I can find are rethread kits (sounds right to me) on the Snap On site.

Any ideas for specific products? Any particular reason why everything kind of stops at 9/16 x 18 and skips 9/16 x 20?

Get thee to

for the taps.

They sell the appropriate dies also

and tell your shop's mechanic about this site if he / she does not already use it. Both Park and VAR sell exactly what you need. Don't buy that snap-on stuff
