67 Front Sheet Metal U-Nut 3784845
« on: June 02, 2014, 01:41:12 AM »
Does anyone have a picture of an original 67 3784845 U-nut that is used on the front end sheet metal?
The searches I have done indicate that the ones form AMK are not correct.

The AMK catalog includes two different parts with that same PN.. appear to be the same except for one having a hex staked nut, and the other having a square staked nut.   (both are on pg 59)..   I don't have a '67, but generally the nuts on similar Chevy parts I see have square nuts.  Which do you believe is correct, and what is it about the AMK part(s) that you believe to be incorrect?

Bob,

  Here 'ya go. This original nut has a square edge and the AMK is rounded.

Gary & Mike,
Thanks for the reply.

Mike,
Thanks for the pictures, they have answered my questions and as always I greatly appreciate your help in finding original parts for my 67.

Anyone have an idea where I can find 28 of the pictured U nuts?
Bob

Kurt,
Would it be possible to add 3784845 to the end of the Subject box so others might find this thread easier?
