Anybody know a machinist's trick for starting the right front bearing retaining ring in the hub, the one with the fine left hand thread? I have delicately tried getting mine started with no luck. I am deathly afraid of cross threading this silly thing. Both hub and ring threads look O.K., and the ring came out just fine, but offering this fine thread to the hub is not working.

Turn it backward until you feel it drop onto the next thread, then turn forward.

Are there left hand threading taps to freshen up these threads if they won't start and accept the retaining ring? If this is single cutting tool work on a lathe then the hub is likely junk.
