I knew it! No self-respecting Italian would let the end of that pipe sit on the rubber bumper and chafe. I presume I can find something that will fit in the Help! section at the auto store? Perhaps something nylon that will hold up better and glide a bit on the rubber. I just got some new bumpers.

Yep! I've gone to using a nylon/hard plastic type plug with a convex-dished head.
The original plug was of a softer rubber with a flat face. They lasted 5 years ... at best.

Hi: I just now saw your response to my question because someone else responded today. Do you have a couple of these flat nuts/washers that you would be interested in selling?
Thank you
Harris

I just finished inserts for my front pieces, trunnions I guess you call them?
A previous owner had trouble and rethreaded them for 9mm bolts. The Timesert kit worked great, as their tap still had enough metal to work with.
I bought stainless inserts for the kit, which protruded slightly.
I sanded the protrusion down.

The kit is pictured as to number, then I bought the shortest 8mm x1.25 stainless inserts.

I'll be able to fit a hex head button top 8mmx 1.25 stainless metric now. When the trunnions are rethreaded, the hex button head machine screws are 8mm 1.25 thread 16mm long, and you can find them anywhere. 5/16th" stainless clips will hold the trunnions in if you can't find metrics. Liberally coat that trunnion post with antiseize and you'll be happier.
