im confused as to how nuts and bolts are measured.

a 1/2" spanner won't fit it though will it?

thanks

Threads are measured on the nominal diameter of the threaded part, NOT the spanner size (apart from very old Whitworth shite, but don't worry about that).

On a mini there are the following common sizes

1/4" thread - 7/16" spanner (e.g. gearbox to block bolts)
5/16" thread - 1/2" spanner (used in lots of places)
3/8" thread - 9/16" spanner (e.g clutch slave cyl bolts)
7/16" thread - 11/16" spanner (e.g. ball joint nuts)
1/2" thread - 3/4" spanner (e.g. radius arm nuts)

Namrick used to do a mixed selection pack of UNF sizes, with plain and nyloc nuts, plain and spring washers, all plated. If they still do then it is well worth buying.
