Does anyone know the thread for the cable adjusters that Norton used on Manx brake backing plates please.

Specifically I need to know what was used on the 4 leading shoe versions. But I suspect it would be the same as the twin leader brakes.

I think it is 5/16" 26tpi, but not sure. Also, if it is 26tpi would be cycle or whitworth thread, ie 60 or 55 degree?

I hope someone can settle this "argument" for me.
Cheers,
Greg

New thread to me but explains the confusion of 26tpi and 55 degree

https://britishfasteners.com/threads/bsb.html

BSB has a 26 TPI pitch through the whole range and is often confused with BS Cycle thread the difference being that brass thread has an angle of 55 degrees whereas Cycle is 60 degrees. Brass threads are usually confined to fittings and adjusters on cables.
