Default M10 Turbo Hardware - Smaller than 17mm?

Hey guys!

Does anyone know if an all-metal locknuts exist in an M10 with a hex size less than 17mm? I am not sure if I can even fit a 17mm wrench in that tight space. I search McMaster, no luck.

The serrated M10 15mm nuts that begi gave me keeps shaking loose and falling off.

I got some Nordlock washers from mcmaster, but I'm trying to find a nut that won't vibrate off if it ever come loose again.

Also, the M10 nut serration doesn't extend all the way to the ID of the nut, so, if I use the M10 nut, only half of the serration will come into contact with the serration of the Nordlock washer.

I've tried this game, you will fail.


BTW, I took my turbo out of my car in less than 15-minutes last time. Just 2 nuts on the air ratchet, one slap of the deadblow, and the I moved on with my life.

^ agreed, you are fighting a battle that you will loose. However i do belive that the stock mustang manifold bolts are m10 all metal lockers. Either m10 or m8 cant recall and they have a 13mm hex head. Once they stop shaking loose they start breaking.
