I am looking at the thread chart for British Standard Whitworth Series,
and there is one size that is very close on the pitch, but the
dia.differs by .025". I will venture to say it can't be BSW. Is it
possible that the PO machined the original bolts flush and drilled &
taped the holes to M7x1.25? Can you see any evidence of that?
