Does anyone know the thread size for the nut that secures the temperature gauge senor bulb into the head? It must be a BSPT thread. My 1/4" BSPT tap is just too small, so I am thinking it is 3/8" BSPT. Can anyone confirm this? The threads are sound, but the nut goes from finger tight to very tight fast, so I am thinking the threads are choked up just past the point where the nut sat for years of uninterrupted service. I just want to get a tap in there to clean them out a bit.

Subject: [Healeys] Front Rotor/Hub Question
I'll be installing new rotors and pads on my BJ8's front disks, and I have the kind of question only a really anal-retentive person would ask:
Do the bolts that affix the hub to the rotor go in bolt head outside, or inside; i.e. with the bolt head, or nut, against the hub flange? It seems like the bolt head should be outside, but when I bought the car the nuts were on the outside.
