So I FINALLY found the time to get everything back together and just when I think I'm in the clear, the axle where the nut and cotter pin goes on is damaged.

 

Looks like at some point during the years it's been apart that something must have smashed against it and damaged the threads. 

 

I can't get the nut to grab, so my only other thought would be to buy a die and pray that I can rethread this.

According to the manual that's the size I would need.

 

What would you all recommend?  I'm SO close to getting this finished and moving on...

Titus I have one of those hand thread files that has about 8 different thread types....I had one like that on one of my d4-10's..I think someone had used a hammer to mushroom it....I filed down the flatten out part and used the hand file to clean up the threads.......may be one way to go

I do the same as Scott does, with one exception....no fancy file, just a small triangular file, but it does the job.  If there is a lot of mushrooming, I take an angle grinder & angle off the outer edge, then either file to repair remaining threads, or run a tap over it.

Peter, This is the best and quickest way to fix it and it will work just fine for you.

Thank you guys!  I got it!!!!

 

Took some patience and time, but it's back on. For some reason, on this side, I don't have enough threads for a cotter pin though. And I don't want to push my luck and continue to thread this in then it strip completely. I'm happy with the end result and since I'm attempting to restore this, it's not going to get much ride time. 

 

Moving forward!

Everything's back together, turning as it should, I'm almost done and it seems I've misplaced the brake cover! I have torn the shop apart and still can't find it. 

 

Anyone know of one that would work in case I have to replace this?

Yes drum, was a long day when I wrote that. But thankfully today I found that. Now the task of finding/ replacing that snap ring is at hand. That's tomorrows project, getting it all together and primed, then going onto the frame to reassemble the rest!

I figured you'd find it.  You never seem to find something till you're not looking hard for it.

Anyone happen to know the snap ring size for the brake drum? Mine crumbled when I went to put it back on.
