Is it possible to rethread ?

I have a pair of vintage campy track cranks, but the pedal thread on the non-drive side crank is off. When I try to put on pedals it stops threading about 1/8 of the way on and I don't want to force it. Is there anything I could do or do I have to find another crank arm ?

Thanks,
Gregg-o

Any decent bike shop will have pedal taps that will fix you up.

Try running the pedal in from the back side of the crank. You might also want to use a different pedal, maybe a new one with good clean threads. That may clean up the threads enough to be able to put the pedal in from the front.
