Tie rod end - metric or inch?

I would like to find out the size of the thread on the Rover tie rods (the male end that threads into the rod , not the tapered stud) I have one out but none of my pitch guages seems to fit very well. Is it 18mm x 1.5 or 11/16 x 16 or what? Help a dummy out!!!!!!
thanks

Smile Found the answer!

The stock rover tie rod is 11/16-16 which is an odd ball and makes it impossible to find weld in threaded plugs for DOM or 4130. Howerver, Moog part #'s ES150R & L are 3/4-16 with a taper that will fit the rover arms. Hope this is of some help for those contemplating making their own 1.5" DOM links.

Are you running this setup? If so, how's it working out for you?

The taper is not the same, LR Taper is 1:10 I belive the old GM is 1:7
