Possibly, it looks like the majority of the thread is gone though unfortunately! I know the nut was cut off as it wouldn't come off of the housing. Personally, I think it is too far gone, but I'll have a look at work tonight if we have a die set that'll fit.
Worst case scenario, I already have a replacement!
Scrub all that, I went to fit the nut on my replacement motor, only to find the first ****ing three threads are missing! So much for a good replacement!
Mine has the middle 2-3 threads missing. I've coaxed it on and down on both housings using a little 3 in 1 oil, cleaned up with WD40 and then another run with 3 in 1 again. They both tighten up to the bottom, I guess only time will tell if either will actually hold properly. Also went to fit the new plate and rubber, only to find they don't fit, and the rubber is a different shape to the two I have! Ugh!! I reckon the kit must be for the front, so is still useful to me, if I do that one too. I'm starting to think I shouldn't have bothered starting this now with the luck I seem to be having!
Requested prices for pretty much all the seals, washers, nuts, etc. listed on Nissan Fast. I'll probably just buy the whole bloody lot, should get all the bits I need then! Don't fancy buying a new rear motor, they're about £300!
