I removed the power steering hoses from the power steering box on my 69 Z and when I tried to replace them I found that one of the hoses wouldn't rethread back in. After further inspection I found that the male end of the hose had some ragged out threads, so I bought a new hose, no luck. I also suspect the female threads are toast as well. Can these be rethreaded. I know I can replace the male threads by replacing the hose, but it's the female threads on the steering box itself that concerns me. Someone told me to try a 1/4" pipe thread tap but will there be enough travel to do any good. Or are there any other options?
