Parts catalogue Landrover III Part number RTC 9841 CE June 1988 has a nice photo of a Landrover with a tyre mounted on the Bonnet.

Shame it has no mention of the clamp parts needed to attached it ! (That I found...)

A helpful friend though it was better mounted on the rear door, but having done that he found it overlapped with hitching Ball !

In the process the bar with a central hole was lost as well as the long bolt was lost.... Grrrr......

After 3 years of having it rattle on the bonnet secuted a a pin with went though the wheel nuts normally used held it from falling off into the road or mud . Not very satisfactory.

Now making a new bar is easy enough but which thread was used for the mounting plate which has a threaded hole in the middle of it.

I tried UNF 5/8th bur that was 2 to 3mm (?) too wide,

So does any body have any ideas on what thread this Nut might be ?

I've tried a few which looked possible but they were not...

Many responses with best guesses etc most welcome.

If I mounted my 6 stone weight Wolf wheel and tyre on the bonnet I'd never be able to lift the bonnet.
Tim, try Dunsfold Land Rover re your spare wheel bits.
