You won't find this particular thread pitch at a hardware store.


I believe they use 14mm spark plug threads for O2 sensors.

If 14 mm threads. Do like a freind of mine does. Take a bolt cut groove in it from tip of bolt toward the heads. In other words make a notch like a tap. He has done this numerous times to chase a thread. If 14mm sparkplug take old plug and do it to it.
