After sealing a 1970 a65 gas tank with POR15 I made sure not to get any on the petcock hole threads but of course the next day some had dribbled out. Now it’s dry and i need a solution. I was thinking of a 3/8 tap but is this whitworth? Do they even make whitworth taps? What can I do?

I had to tap the holes on a fuel tank that takes that size petcocks (to remove some epoxy primer). I got the tap from British Tools and Fasteners - it is British Pipe Thread, 1/4 X 19 tpi. (Note, it is sized by the i.d. of the pipe.)

correct it is BSP

if i ever need a tap (which is rare cause i have lots left over from my days in the trade) im only going to use a few times . specially for just cleaning out a thread I try the second hand tool places , BSP ( here anyway) is a very common size and i can imagine it isn't that unusual in the USA ? ........they will cost $5 instead of how much new from some bike bits type supplier ?
