[T3] Early front brake pistons?

I rather assumed that was the case, but I can't be certain.  In the garage I
have a couple of adjuster screws which I'm fairly sure came from a late Type
3 rear as I've not had a short nose model for decades - they have a 7mm wide
slot and 26mm of thread.  I also have a bag of NOS with 3mm wide slot, but
I've no idea what they're from, and I also found a bag of NOS brass adjuster
wheels, which should come in handy some day!

Someone will know for certain I expect.

Sorry if my best guess is off-beam.

So you think the narrow slots were the early ones and the wide ones were
later, and not the other way around?
