Hi I have fitted new nuts in the past and there are at least two as some were metric and some were imperial.

Thank you for the reply's The nut in the barrel that l have must be metric as the imperil screw l tried would not fit. Ken

must be metric

Sorry, but that assumption is flawed - if the previous reply is read correctly. There may be more than a single imperial thread used. Likely, but not certainly.
