And not one fits a Model T
Lots of original square nuts on my T
RE And not one fits a Model T
I see at least 4 that you can find samples of on a Model T.
Yep, at least 4, the castle, the slotted, the square and the torque lock...but I also use the cap for finish ends and I love the flange nut, for all sorts of places where I don't want to fiddle with a bloody washer. I also like the nylon lock for things that tend to shake themselves apart...like the engine.
The plain hex nuts are used on manifold clamps and on the rear radius rods. I sneaked in a couple of Tee nuts to hold the wooden frames on my roadster doors. The early cars with side plates also used wing nuts to secure them.

You forgot to show the corresponding bolts! Pulled this off Internet so hope not stepping on any toes...
This 'thread' has deteriorated to the point that I am now comfortable chiming in:
I saw the following thread/nut size gauge advertised in a Hemming's publication recently. I have no connection to this company, but I think this is a useful item.
Hard boiled eggs and nuts.
5, I forgot about the early valve covers using wing nuts.
