Please excuse a dumb question from a Newbie but, Are the fasteners on this bike Whitworth or what? Thanks.

I'm sure John was correct. I measured the TPI, but not the thread angle.Ron L mentioned the gearbox cover fasteners being "1/4 CEI" (old BSC) thread (most British Cycle threads are 60 deg, 26 tpi, regardless of diameter) however, but I know that John Hudson refers to the outer cover screws as being "1/4 BSF" (55 deg. 26 tpi) in his gearbox rebuild video?
