Question Anybody know what size nut this is & where I can find it?

So while I was removing my throttle body to clean it out, one of the nuts slipped out of my hand & just disappeared apparently. Does anyone know what size nut this is & where I can find it? Please refer to the photo I’ve provided for help identifying it.

Any hardware store should have one.

Assuming you lost one of the 3 flange nuts that hold the TB to the manifold it's M8 x 1.25. The arrow in your pic appears to be pointing to the nut on the throttle shaft.

I think we're switching things up a bit here.
Do you need the nut in the red or in the green circle (3 of those with one being where your arrow is pointing out of sight behind / under the throttle shaft holding the throttle body to the manifold)?
Red is the M10 lock nut, green is the M8 flange nut.

You will find the missing nut as soon as you have a replacement in hand. Life just works like that.

Got a ruler that measures in mm? Thread pitch looked correct? Try and measure yourself from thread peak to thread peak.

Maybe someone has calipers handy and can take the measurement for you. I unfortunately don't.
