    Default Ford 2000 Steering Nut Size and Thread Count?

    I have a 1973 ford 2000 diesel that i just completed a steering box rebuild on thanks to this site. However I managed to ding the threads badly on the steering shaft. I need to chase them before putting a new steering wheel on. Does anybody have any idea what the thread count is and where to get a die for this?

    Thanks

    They have files that you can use to fix threads like that. Try Sears . Welcome to TBN...

    I did not even know they made thread files, it only took about 10 minutes to clean up. Best of all I rented them from Autozone for free.

    Thanks for the help guys.
