Subject: [CR]More French dimensions - Huret dropout adjustors

Just when you think you've seen all the weird Frecnh dimensions. My recently acquired 1974 Raleigh Super Tourer was missing the adjustors on the Huret dropouts - same DOs used on the Competition MKII. So I decided to rob the adjustors off a Raleigh International frame I may not build up for a while. To my surprise, the adjustors from the International (which has Campy DOs), were too small to thread into the Huret DOs.

Evidently the Huret adjustors were a larger OD than the adjustors used on Campy and most other DOs. Can anyone confirm this? Don't suppose anyone has a source for Huret adjustors?
