Default Re: Where do I find the tall head nuts?

I'm assuming you're talking about cylinder head fasteners on a Chinese 2 stroke?

Standard hex nuts will work but I prefer what is called, 'flanged or shouldered' nuts. They have them in smooth or with locking teeth. I buy mine at Ace Hardware. Look in their metric fastener section.
Just make sure to use a torque wrench when installing the head. 120 to 140 inch pounds.
