    Thanks for your replies.

    Today I managed to sort it by getting m6 fittings from Screwfix but I have a stubborn leak from the paint outlet port. I’ve used lots of ptfe tape, but there’s still a slow and persistent leak. Tomorrow I’m going to try and see if a threaded cap nut on the inside of the lid will stop the leak. Failing that I’ll have to take it off altogether and replace it with a nut/bolt and washer.

    I had a leak on my air compressor, one of the maintenance blokes at work a loctite thread sealer, 10 years later still going strong.
    something like this.
