Ed,

Did you try Newco? I know he’s had them in the past as I’ve got them from him myself previously.

Newco's acorn nuts are 12mm high, which is correct just for later motors.

John,

NADA......emailed with newco and he said he never made the 14mm tall acorn nuts.....

might have to make a call to some resto shops to see if i can encourage them to scrounge up small quantities....

any suggestions....?

Ed, the only place that had these until about 2013 or so was "Maseratinet.com" in Auburn, WA.

Can you please follow up, I've been looking for these for a long time.

Checked our stocks here, we have two domed nuts that people use for cam covers etc, parts 100044 and 101239 and they are both about 12mm high. I have the equivalent part number for the inside plug engines as 92310, but that superseeds over to an 'open' nyloc nut. Will see if we have any other information or options here at Maranellos.

Checking - do you know what thread size you are after to fit, we've got a lot of different domed nuts here, so might be able to find something to suit.
