Thank you for your reply, would you know what type of thread is used. I have tried metric bolts and they will not screw in, Some one did mention that they could be one of the american threads. regards Peter

If metric 2.5/2.6mm don't fit then your friend may be right.Best way then is to try some american thread and see if they are correct.

It is a long time since I had one but these were most likely either AF or even BA thread. They are not metric, that I do remember. It was a good arm with high compliance cartridges such as the ADC 26 and 10EMkIV.

The headshell on my arm had been drilled right through when I got it so I just use the common metric nuts and bolts with mine.

Mine is stock drilled, and I used screws from a Stanton DJ cartridge package that bolted directly, was lucky, and Stanton is American.

Default Mission 774 Headshell threads

On my mission 774 (which I believe is virgin) the headshell blocks threads ARE
metric: 2.5 x 8 for the bolts. When I purchased it it had cut down original bolts in use that were not long enough for my Grace Ruby. I took the original bolt to my (Large) Ace hardware store that had a selection of metric bolts and one fit, groove for groove. I got the new ones home and they worked like a charm (note: slot head not socket head but who cares). Hope this helps someone.
