Ahhh, the Z was going at about 245mm/rev hmmm could this be the problem.  If so how do I get it to follow the speed set by the 'F'

That would be about  correct for the example you gave, ie your revs were 120rpm and pitch was 2.1mm so that would mean 120 x 2.1 = 252mm/min

In my example above I was probably getting the terminology wrong.

Can you do a single start thread no problem?

Edit
 just read again, were you meaning 245mm/rev like you said or per min?
