clean the thread I'm not sure how much paint is on there but a toothpick should be enough to remove the paint

if you want to re-tap the threads the tank screws into your way better off buying something new b/c the tap alone will cost a arm and a leg.


edit:
If you really want to know its 1/2 NPS......i found one for $65 and another place had it for $70

Try soaking it in brake fluid, that strips paint real well.

just by screwing in your tank a little at a time (backing it out each time) using some kind of machine oil as a lubricant should do the trick.
