I may have led you astray. The part I measured was the one in the upper
picture from Michael Salter. Who knew there were two versions!
Sorry about that... Harold

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.
