About to buy a tap and die set to clean (or cut new) threads on a stripped transfer case drain plug hole. I believe the threads are metric but if I'm cutting new ones and installing a new bolt, I don't have to necessarily keep them that way. I'm probably leaning metric, though, in hopes of cleaning up the threads that are there, and cutting all new ones as a last resort. Any recommendations on buying metric or SAE? My goal for now is to buy just one set.
