I hate doing those things. Snap off the extractor and its a real mess. Luckily, that bolt, I'm guessing broke from heat shearing, not from twisting it off. It was broken when I got it.

I have a copper crush washer, so I'm hoping that will make a good seal. I have seen on another write up where someone re-threaded my exact sender with good results.

Did you cut yours with a single point on a metric lathe, or with a die?
