Hi,
Does anybody know what size and thread the heater valve retaining nuts are?
Is there anywhere else on the mini with similar size and thread that I can skank just so I can fit the heater valve and get my engine running?
Cheers

1/4”UNF

Same as gearbox to block nuts, but you might not want to rob two of those!

I can’t think of anywhere you could sensibly borrow some

Hi, no, I'm not talking about head studs.
On the very left hand side of the head is the heater control valve, it attaches to the head via two small studs with small nuts.
Its these nuts I'm having difficulty locating.
Sorry for any confusion, it's been a long day lol

Thank you for all your replies, I've sourced some online, I always use minimine, they sell on ebay and I've had nothing but amazing service from them 😊
