Sometimes using a hacksaw blade works good for fixing damaged threads.

Count the number of threads for an inch. They are fine threads so if you're anything like me you'll have to count 3 or 4 times
A number 1 thread file goes to 24 tpi.

Thread count is 18 tpi. Pretty tough on the eyes (mine at least) counting thread this fine, but I also verified this is correct with a thread file.

Years ago I bought a box of misc. at an auction sale. One of the items was a thread gauge. Easier than trying to count threads.

Thanks for the information. have been trying to find a thread file with no luck.

Lacking a thread gauge, it's possible to determine the pitch easily by finding a bolt that would mesh with the threads. In this case, it would be a 5/16 NC, which is 18 TPI. Saves squinting and counting. Just not as handy as a gauge.
