How to measure screw thread positions subject to material condition variations

How to measure screw thread positions subject to material condition variations

(OP)
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to inspect the position of a screw thread when called out at MMC? Is there an "assured tight fit" gauge that will at least enable one to measure the thread position RFS?

Also, I generally have a need for a reference text that describes dimensional inspection techniques for features controlled by geometric tolerances per ASME Y14.5M-1994 (or -2009). Can anyone point me to one?

I have no idea about the answer to your question, but usually anything related to fastener measurement/inspection can be answered by this company:
