hitachi radio nuts for front facia

Recommended Posts

I am missing the nuts that secure the radio's front facia to the on-off/volume knob and the channel select knob.  Does anyone know the size and pitch of these nuts.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I had the same issue for one of my Hitachi radios and ordered a pair from Wholesale Electronics, Inc. The nuts are 8MM and are made specifically for import radios.  www.weisd.com is located in Mitchell, SD. The 2 nuts were only 8-cents apiece and were the last 2 available. Hopefully, they have more now. The grand total with shipping was $10.06.

The correct nuts have centering bosses to align the face plate with the radio. Do the WE nuts have that feature? At least they do on the early AM only radio, I'm not sure if they are the same for the later AM/FM radios.

You're going to make me go measure the threads aren't you? I can't stand not knowing....

All the nuts I've seen have the raised center. 

M8 x 0.75mm is the thread size.
