Dose the club have a tool loaning program? I have one exhaust flange on my 1986 R80RT that needs to have the treads cleaned with a die. Do you know of any other site that does this?

You may be able to locate a "thread file" that can remove the small interfering bits down in the root of the threads much easier than locating said thread die. Thereafter, be sure and apply a product called Never-Seez or another anti-seize product.

I've ordered the files and hope they work up near the fins.
Have I read somewhere in the the forum or Airmail that there are some special tools available to be loaned out?

Thanks for the file hint..... I've never used them before
