If the threads are so bad that they can not be repaired in the cylinder about all you can do is replace the assembly. If it is just the bleeder itself, you may save a lot of work if you could either re thread it or pull one off another slave cylinder at a wrecking yard. If you need instructions on replacement, drop us a note. Just be glad it isn't a 96 or you would need to remove the whole transmission because the slave on those is the new concentric design. Thanks
