well i can save you about 28 dollars go to your local hobby store and ask them for a glow plug tap for the airplane engines it is the same thing as the holley jets and they cost about 7 bucks!!!! i didnt believe it at first either until i went and picked one up a few years ago

Yes, BK19 is correct. The thread size for a Holley jet is a 1/4"x32 pitch. Not many hardware stores will stock anything other than the 1/4"x28 (the normal fine thread), and that won't work for ya.
If you have trouble finding a tap, drop me a line, and I'll set ya up with one cheap. I have several suppliers that keep me stocked that don't require me sending them my first born child to pay the bill...LOL!

Hope that helps.

BE SURE AND GET TWO DIFFERENT TAPS, A TAPER TAP AND A BOTTOM TAP. 1/4 32 IS THE SIZE AND THREADS PER INCH NOT PITCH. JUST A CLARIFICATION.
