A threaded barrel with a thread pitch of 5/8 - 24 has a 5/8" inch threaded diameter and 24 threads per inch of threaded barrel.
Every 360 degree turn of a device advances the device 1/24th of an inch.
1/24 = 0.04166666666 inch
0.04166666666/ 360 = 0.00011574074
Every degree turned advances the device 0.00011574074 inch
So if my device, torqued down to spec is advanced 45 degrees ahead of being timed, I would have to create a shim that is 0.00520833333 inch.
That's the exact answer I'm looking for! Thanks hoovco
