    Does anyone know the thread size for the grease nipples on an Austin Somerset?


    Hi there Malcolm,

    Generally, these are BSF, and I have come across sizes from 1/8 inch to 5/16 inch. If though you are seeking to replace any that were in original Austin parts, such might be difficult to acquire. Being in the UK, perhaps such thread sizes could be more readily available.

    Should it be replacement ones for tie rod ends, if the tie rod end has already been replaced at an earlier time, they might even be type of “self-tapper” type thread, as I have experience here on occasions.

    Whilst some spares places here would not bother to check, if you take the required thread with you, they might have a vernear and thread gauge to enable it to be checked.

    Good luck-Peter
