So I have an extra big port mani that I was cleaning up and I had to remove the injector seats bc a couple were cracked. I'm wondering what the threads are and if I can get a tool to clean up the threads for when I put new seats in it. I've been looking all morning and can't find what they are.

You are looking for the thread size? No idea what it is, but just run a brush through the threads and spray with brake cleaner.

Yea. I need the thread size. When cleaning them I nicked of few of the threads so I was to make them right again.

It's alright if they're a bit damaged, use PTFE tape to seal the threads and it'll be just fine.

Never thought about that....just a thought, would the metal ones still go in if they aren't too bad?

I used a metal pick and small flat head screwdriver to clean up the threads when I nicked one of them. A tap that large ain't gonna be cheap, but it would be the best solution.

I screwed mine pretty bad and I just used Teflon tape on the plastic seats and then threaded them in. I didn't both cleaning or restoring the threads and just put the seats back in and no issues.

I put new ones in and used the liquid thread sealant tape equivalent. Just thought it wouldn't hurt.
