Almost all threads on the JH, or any english car of this era for that matter, are NF (UNF in the UK) which are fine threads, with rare exception. The engine however is all metric! Due to the fact that it's a Lotus unit, and they had converted to metric ealier than Jensen did. I usualy get my hardare from the Home Depot, ACE or True Value. The later two have stainless steel bolts & screws. They all have a faily extensive range of nuts and bolts, including NC, NF and metric. Good luck, Colin
