Hi Buddy :-) "Just missed buying this myself". What's wrong with the lock nut ? Just plain spanner rash or cracked ? For what it's worth, "I doubt you'll get out of this 1". Had exactly this issue myself last year and gave up trying to get out of it, just conceded defeat, bought another Campy headset.

I tried at least 8 different types looking for a match, but no chance. A cheapo chromed lower, and a Campagnolo upper looks the part, but your lock nut is duff.

Sorry I can't help :( Best of Luck yours Laz.
