This is the folder Forum. What other kind of Twenty would I be talking about? :-)
Obviously, I'm going to have a closer look before commiting myself but, with the parts I have to hand, it looks like I should take more off the drive side than the adjustable side, in order to get the right chainline.
My point being that that would allow me to retain useage of the original threads on the adjustable side, and have "weakend" threads on only one side.
Or better still, if somebody knows where I can rent or buy a left hand 1-3/8" 26tpi tap then I could retain both cups.
The main point here is though that, before I started down this path, none of what I read indicated that to make the 7NL spindle work I would have to re-tap the threads anyway.
