some are and some aren't, I have no idea what the change over date is.  It's very annoying!

L reg and onwards are left hand thread. Discovered this when my g40 failed due to corroded fuel relay terminals. Had the eye out of my k reg one, which to my annoyance wouldn't fit. On further inspection discovered the problem.
