Spindle Question 85 gsl-se

Does anyone know what the thread pitch/size is on an 85 gsl-se spindle nut? I am looking to buy an adapter for my longacre caster/camber gauge, and don't know what i need to get/make for it to fit.

THanks in advance...

Get the magnetic base gauge. It is the one I use in the shop. Center of magnet is hollow to allow the spindle pin to slip in side. Just remove the dust cap and stick it on.

i don't think it will fit on the end since the center hole in the wheel is so small (gsl-se wheels). Any other ideas? Don't i need to keep the wheels on to do this? (turning plates would be necessary also i assume)

I designed and machined a steel part which slips into the hub (tight fit) where the dust cap goes, and then sticks out enough to clear the wheels. My magnetic camber gauge then sticks to my adapter.
