I have an old (now polished and nickel plated) decompression lever, which I would like to use on my TT Rep to activate the cylinder barrel oiling system.
I am missing the screws, which appear to be 3/16″ and 32 tpi (although the one brass 3/16″ 32 tpi screw that I have seems to be a bit loose in the threaded holes and I wonder if 7/32″ might be correct).
Anyway, does this sound correct and, if so, where can I buy some (preferably nickel plated) domed cheese head screws?
There were some odd-ball screws (“bastard sizes” as my old man used to term them..) around decades ago, but 7/32 sounds too obscure even for that.
I always thought levers and their clamps were usually a BA size? Maybe Google it and see…
Thanks for the suggestion.
Yes, 7/16″ does seem strange. So, it’s probably 3/16″.
However, trying to find a dome headed, nickel plated (or otherwise) 3/16″ 32 tpi screw appears to be virtually impossible to find (even on the internet).
Hence my request for help to locate a manufacturer/seller.
Mr Marshall is the man who usually knows these things ; I wonder if he might even have a couple in his box(es) of spares.
