You will need to use 1/2 x 3 carriage bolts. I got mine at my local Case/IH dealer but, you should be able to get them at any hardware store or farm supply store.

1/2 - 13 X 3" Use grade 8 bolts. Should be able to pick them up at a good ag store etc. I know the Lowe's stores around here carry some grade 8 hardware.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Hey Big Dog,

Is that "13" the pitch? Is that a ty-po or is there really a 13 pitch in Ohio?
I can only find a 12 pitch in my Tech Spec book under Americal Standard Unified and American Threads. The 13 pitch is listed on a 1/2" bolt only as
optional.

Good to see you on here. Hope you and the misses is doing well.

Got your back Bigdog. :lol: :lol: :lol:

As far as I know 1/2-13 is the standard NC thread.

Russ, 1/2 - 13 is NC std. (at least in the north) :) Thanks for the backup Donny!

Your absolutely right, Donny. 1/2-20 would be the fine pitch.

I just went to the shop and looked around. Amazingly, I did find a 1/2 - 12 die, but no tap. All the NC stuff is 1/2-13. Is MS a furrin country, Russ?

George. The only 1/2-12 I have heard of (unless made special) is a "Whitworth" thread. If you have a Whitworth die, it must be an old one! Haven't seen them around in a while. They're too close in size to a 1/2-13 and could be mistakenly confused with each other. I think the thread shape is slightly different, also.....

Yes, the whitworth thread would have rounded crests. This die is clearly marked 1/2-12 and no other marking. In further searching through the odd tap drawer so I could see the thread form better, I didn't find a 1/2-12, but I did find some other dandies. How about a 9/16-12 1/2? :lol:

9/16-12 1/2 ?? 9/16-12 is a standard. There are comman 11 1/2 tpi, but that 9/16-12 1/2 is a new one on me! Wonder what it was used for?

George,

Would you happen to have a 9/16-18 in that drawer of yours :?: :?: :?:

Strange but true...9/16-12 and 9/16-18 are Whitworth threads. Don't know why such a strange size???

Donny,

Yes, I have a 9/16-18, but it's LH! :D :D :D

Maybe you can decode the markings...
12C344
T1382A
High Speed
9/16-18
U S F LH
and elsewhere... P.&W. Co. (Pratt & Whitney?)

And, yes, the crests are slightly rounded. I have no idea where it came from or why.

George,

:lol: :lol: :lol: Since I knew your tool boxes are wooden I am not suprised to know you have a 9/16-18 (tap or die?). Left hand no less :!: :!: :!:
I have on idea what the first 2 numbers are. The U S F LH is fairly easy.

For those of you that wonder about the wooden tool boxes...I've been around machinist's all of my life. For me the wooden tool box has always smybolized quality and craftsmanship, as the most competent machinist's always had wooden tool boxes.
