What is the thread on the water pump of a Saab 99? Old style, and/or new style. I know it's left handed and metric, but before I order a tap and die set for it, I'm hoping someone here can tell me definitively. I have borrowed a water pump removal/insertion tool from our local independant guy, and his is chewed up to the point of almost unusuable. If I can make some new parts for it for him, that'll work better for me, and will give him incentive to loan me tools again if I need something. Anyway, 12mm left hand, maybe, for the new, and 6mm left hand for the old style is my guess, but I'd love to get a confirmation. I don't have thread gages for metric... Dave Hinz
