I have a few tap and dies. I had the tap for the 7/16-14 I used to clean out the threads so I might have the die as well. Will be worth the effort if it isn't too buggered up. Part of the problem was that the running boards were loose so getting up and down over the years just messed the threads up on the bolt and hole.
