Success! A friend of mine lent me a tapered end mill larger than the plug opening. We pushed a scrap of foam rubber into the fork to catch the metal filings. I used an air die grinder with the mill and cleaned up the top thread area. I could start the nut by hand, and worked it down with Tap Magic. Then took out the nut, used a shop vac to suck out the metal scraps and pulled out the foam. Now I can start putting the front end together! Thanks to all!
