Hi

The #8 screw that’s used for the ground terminal next to the IEC socket has its thread damaged so that the nut won’t rotate to fix the washer/lug.

Since I live in Australia imperial screw are hard to find. The only #8 screw I could find was 1 inch in length. Is the length of the screw important in this situation?

That's OK provided the extra screw length doesn't touch anything.
