    That's what I think but I need to know for sure as I'm in England and if I order the wrong locking lug nuts I'm stuck with them! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    7/16-20 is whats on my 77, and they sure didn't switch to metric lugs in 78, so I'd put all kinds of money on you having them as well.
