What's the size of the nut holding the brake cylinder? I measured about 23 mm but obviously I need it in imperial size. 7/8 ? 28/32 ?

I'm too lazy to go out and take my front wheel and hub off to measure, but I did look in the 1960-1964 Parts and Accessories catalogs. The illustrated catalog shows the front nut being part number 359398-S (MM-126) and the lock washer being p/n 358771-S (XX-340). Not sure what the numbers in parentheses are. The text catalog describes the corresponding nut as Nut (front anchor pin) - 15/16"-16 and the washer as Lockwasher - 61/64". These show as being correct for 1960 and up Ford (i.e. full size, Galaxie, Custom, wagon, etc.) and Thunderbird. So sounds like 15/16-16, the -16 being 16 threads per inch pitch.
