I'm guessing what tank you have so I'll guess 3BA.

Thats 000152 5/16" long 3BA bronze head stated in parts list. Length must also be correct. ( old pt no STD 152 ) I have told how to find these sizes so many times. But still getting asked here.

Perhaps you are failing to get pictures to upload as they are too large. There is a file size limit. I think its about 500kb you may be trying to upload a picture of something like 3mb, so you need to down size the file size.
Many standard fittings had sizes stated in old parts lists. This practice seemed to stop about 1952. So you need to check an old parts list. However the best list to check is a master parts list which show old ( pre 1952 ) and new part numbers. This list is also in numerical order, so easier to check a part number. Here's a link to the best master parts list to use. http://archives.jampot.dk/book/Spares_l ... ements.pdf
If you check your tank badge screw part number in this list you will find the sizes I gave you.

Max size 1mb.

What are you using.......Windows.....iPhone.....Tablet, or are your photos on a hosting site..........Photobucket......Tinypics......Postimage........?

There is info on the FAQ's section, although I use an easier way from my Windows laptop which takes 20 secs to do but laborious to explain (although I will do so if necessary):
