One nut pinged away like a scalded cat when undoing the journals for the 4th time trying to get the valve clearances correct
Anyone know the size and thread size for the nut? Not one in my nut box. Neither Classic Alfa or Alfaholics list them.
thanks

Believe they're M8 x 1.0 (fine thread).......I replaced some of mine which were knurled/missing by PO; think the originals may be of slightly less depth but only marginally from what I could easily get.

Thanks guys. I wonder why the UK usuals do not have them. Cannot buy from Germany at the moment as post Brexit trade arrangements in complete disarray. Thanks Boris.

Accu.co.uk highly likely to hae them if you don't trust Ebay (search on M8-X-1-0MM-A2-STAINLESS-STEEL-FINE-PITCH-HEXAGON-FULL-NUTS-HEX-NUT-5-PACK).

No margin in it for the specialists.....
