Like i said bro, it happens to the best of us. Even me. Imagine taking 6 hrs to remove 1 nut thats in a very easy place. There's a story behind that i will tell another day.
I can see a triangle file as a solution for the f'd up threads. Since its the first threads, you may be able to save em. If not, shave em down so the second threads are the first. Worst case. New shaft and thats what we need to avoid. Just hope you didnt screw up the cv joint or the splines in the other end of the shaft.
But for now, i need to get to sleep. Long day and an early wake up. Im sure Rkirk can provide some usefull advice as well. ...
