I would contact your parts source & discuss the situation before moving forward. See how they think you should proceed. Most likely, if you tighten the current one w/o them understanding the issue before then & the threads are jacked after, it becomes your problem.

Since you ran a die down it already, if you're concerned about the threads still galling I'd say your best option is to source another lower BJ & return the one that has this issue.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.
