Nut / Spanner size
« on: 04.12. 2017 09:02 »
Does anyone know what size nuts / spanner these are ?
I want to get a ratchet spanner to do the job of getting them back on.

Long sliding plate bolts.

On the original - large hex takes 5/16w or 3/8BS. Nut takes 3/16w or 1/4BS.

With pattern parts could be metric heads you will need to try a 16 mm on the large head.

The table in the link here can be a bit handy sometimes (as long as you've got a slide gauge to measure across the flats)
