    Default Renault 16 1st Series - Which size bleed nipples?

    G'day everyone,

    Would any of you happen to know which bleed nipples are required for the pre 1968 R16s with the Lockheed-Girling brakes, please?

    I got two tins of calipers missing the damn nipples.

    I think they are 1/4" NF, but not 100% sure.

    Take them to your local brake place and they should be able to supply you with some nipples to suit.

    whoa!!
    Way too early in the morning for such explicit bleed nipple photos.

    Nice find.

    I take it you don't have a box of spare bolts lying about or some vernier calipers and a thread gauge?

    I even have a box with bleed nipples, but none of them fit.

    No to thread gauge, though.
