MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Heater cable nuts

Does anyone know a source of the nuts (either the hex or the circular dress nut) that are used to fasten the heater control cable to the dash. I think the thread is 9/16" x 32tpi. I've fixed a S/H switch,I think I can order the knob from Moss, but the nuts are NLA.

Ta, Mark

are they not the same as all the other Lucas flick switches of the period?

Thanks for the suggestion David. I tried the nut off a new headlamp toggle switch and the thread is different. I suppose modern copies might be manufactured with different threads to match available nuts.

I have one you can have - pm me with your address and I will post it to you.

Ps I think I also kept the knob if you need that as well ??
David Banks

Thanks very much for your kind offer.
PM sent - I think.
