Well, I don't know about the original part, but I tried to run a 7/16-20 UNF thread chaser die over the big end and it was no go.  It deformed the threads within a few turns.  I don't think much of modern manufacturing methods in this case.  So, now I'm looking for an original threaded pillar.  None of the usual suspects sell them.  No telling who made the one I bought from Cape International.  I am beginning to see why my late Healey restorer friend Tom Rock always said he could do three BJ8 cars in the time it took to restore just one 100-4.Mike MacLean
