Default Anybody want to let me borrow the tap for tapping the oil pan?

The cheapest I can find a tap is for over 30 bucks. Anybody willing to let me borrow one? Preferably MI, but I'll pay shipping if not.

Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing someone closer will offer, but if needed I'll ship mine.

What size are you looking for?

I imagine you will need a 1/2" NPT. Let me know if you can't find any. I think I can get them for around $15 or so.

Sorry.

The size I saw listed in the writups for tapping the pan is 1/2x14NPT.

I'd buy one for 15 bucks.

$15 is a good price.

You need a bit as well. For me, every bit I found was stupid expensive. I managed to find a used bit for a great price though.

I'll double check the size on mine, it just depends what oil drain you are running.

I dont have any in stock right now, but I think I can order them. I believe I was quoted around $15 or so for the tap. I dont remember what the drill bit ran. I will try and check. I have 3 big tests tomorrow, so it may be tomorrow before I know anything for sure.

I'm close and I have one! I can run it over to you whenever you need it, all it's doing is sitting in my tool box. I won't charge you anything for borrowing it or running it to you. Just need to be my miata buddy.
