Anyone know where i may source one of these ?

As close to the city centre as possible would be good too.

That sounds like a lock-nut at that thickness.

you sure its alloy??

What you need it for?

 

Yes, it needs to be aluminium as it's to be TIG'd to an Aluminium block.

 

Basically the internal thread that holds the oil pressure switch on my car has a knackered internal thread, this would be welded over the bolt hole as a replacement thread.

But why does it need to be only 1.5mm thick?

I believe 1.5 refers to the pitch of the thread. The actual thread is 14mm.

The problem with these would be the snap off lug, and the fact the block would have to be drilled, meaning turnings could end up inside the block.

Shaws Ironmongers Megs, opposite Silver Blades ice rink, if they don't have one they are all good lads and will try to put you on to where to get one.

 

Williams have a £20 minimum spend these days.

 

M14 is not a popular size either, this size is usually found on trailer air braking and the like.
