ive found over the years that every now and again I had to nip the nut up , itd be ok for a bit then id nip it up again.
got some cotter pins from burton bike bits recently and noticed they tighten up lovely without feeling wooly , if you know what I mean , I presume the profile is good.
they do seem to last a good while.

Thanks, JonnyD, I used your solution and it looks as if it will be fine. The taper of the flat is very shallow, and seems to be about 1/16" over a length of 1 1/4", and as you say, don't continue the taper into the threaded section, just file off enough off the thread to allow clearance for the pin to slide into its hole, thereby retaining as much thread as possible. So that's that out of the way, now (rubbing hands together) for the rest of the things that need doing.

Some impressive and some just silly.
