You're OK Bob, fit "go, no-go" the right nail makes an acceptable pin probably most Ts "back in the day" ran with. We're not the first generation to lose the timer roller pin !

I got stranded in South Dakota's Custer state Park during a tour many years ago due to a cam nut that hadn't been tightened enough. On removal of the timing cover the pin hit the gravel/dirt never to be seen again. I trimmed an upholstery tack shorter with a needle nose plier to finish the tour and ran all week on it.

That is what I like, Noel D C! A car that carries its own spare parts!
