You really can't "re-thread" anything. You can chase the original threads to clean them up, but if they're going away you have only one option - ream out the tube, re-cut at a larger thread size, and set Heli-coil®. But I seriously doubt that a hanger tube would survive that trauma. If the threads really are going away, a new hanger tube is the better option.
