Yes they’re the ones i was talking about.  Very expensive for a nut. Was hoping might be available elsewhere cheaper.  Do you know the size at all?

 

thx

When it comes time to get the nuts back off, any cost of anti-corrosion measures will seem trivial!

But there's lots of hardware out there, there should be many versions of the common M10 x 1.5 for the high heat application if you shop around. I used inexpensive copper coated flange nuts, but I'm guessing the pricy stuff should be better. Use some high temp anti-seize compound on reassembly.

If you want cheap:

I’m not suggesting buying the cheapest but £48 for 8 nuts seems nuts!

Honestly, I`d get the correct nuts and not spend time thinking about saving 20 quid.

Stainless has a tendency to gall, especially if someone has changed the studs to stainless also.

what does gall mean?  Sorry to be a numpty.
