F&S Torpedo Coaster Hub Axle Cap Nuts

A reader recently wrote in looking for replacement axle cap nuts for his F&S Torpedo hub. If you have any thoughts on how Greg might be able to source the nuts, please leave them in the comments of this post.

I have a F&S Torpedo coaster hub from 1961 (D).

I am looking for a set of axle cap nuts.

The F&S part number for “Cap Nut” FG 9,5 is 0316 067 500 (2 each).

I have tried Jens in Germany and he does not have any.

Any suggestions where I might try?

Thanks,
Greg

    Greg,

    I recently ran into the same issue. Sturmey Archer makes a nut that will work. It’s a very slightly smaller thread size but it does work. Look at part HMN128 here:
