Thread size on rear axle for diff cover install?

Plan to install my SouthDown rear diff protection soon.
I'd like to clean up/out the threads in the rear axle.

Does anyone know what size these threads are so I can buy the correct metric tap?

Thanks in advance!
Paul

Is this the thread size for the two holes just past the pinion, beneath the "pig"?

I've been looking to do the same, and I also have to find the bolts too!

Cheers,

They are whitworth threads, very strange pitch. We get them off Series trucks.
