Wanted: One seat mount dome nut (C-V8/early Int)

Post by mojo »

When I came to take out my front passenger seat today I discovered that one of the four chromed dome nuts that hold the seat down to the runner is missing. Does anyone have a spare one they could sell me?

It seems to be 5/16" thread.

Seem to be readily available online. Some don't have as deep a dome. This one might suit:

£9 for 4, plus 4 quid postage.

Thanks, but I don't ~think~ they are UNF. The thread looks too coarse to me, so maybe they are UNC?

As you say, dome nuts are widely available, but these are unusually deep.

Just wondering whether it's the same as the chrome dome nut which holds the MK1 Interceptor steering wheel shroud on?

Just checked and my eyes were wrong. It is, as VFK44 suggests, 5/16 UNF.

Unfortunately I don't own an Int so I can't check what size the steering wheel shroud nuts are!

A Jensen specialist who has much used stock should have one.

Worth giving them a call. River Bourne Classics and Jensen Services Ltd have the biggest supply of used Jensen parts. If they haven't the CV8 domed nut, perhaps they have access to a CV8 seat mount and the MK1 Interceptor shroud nut which they could try fitting. Appreciate there may be an easier solution. Good luck!

That nut definitely looks to have a deeper neck on it. There is a really cool machinist on ebay uk who makes gorgeous nuts in stainless. 1114laurie. You could send him the spec, and if he is interested, send a sample for duplication.
