    Tap

    The only 1 7/16 taps I can find only come in 12, 16 or 18tpi. Wholesale tools has these, maybe they can special order the 8tpi?

      Are you sure it's 1 7/16???? I've got a ton of 8 pitch taps in fractions from 1" to 6" but nothing in 1/16's

        McMaster-Carr carries the 8tpi in most any of the large taps but they don't list 1 7/16. They have just about everything else. Are you sure it's 1 7/16?

        If Mc doesn't show it, it's probably a $pecial order.

              Have you considered using a "Thread Repair File" for the male thread, and making your own "one off" tap for the female thread on the lathe out of Drill Rod or other water hardening Steel?

                The thread file idea is realy good. Also grab a 1" 8 TPI tap with some vice grips and hand scrape the threads clean, if you find a gaul or some damage you dig on that spot with the tap for a while. It may sound nuts but it works just fine.
