Stamped nuts for 1966 GT350 Magnum 500 OEM center caps
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:39:40 PM »
Hi all,

Can anyone confirm that the AMK stamped nut B-10639 is the same nut used on the Magnum 500 center caps.  They look right, but thought I'd ask if any one has purchased and used on the plastic caps.  Below are images of originals, NOS and the AMK nut.

I sent a note to Brant at VCM, but he was not sure if they were the ones or not, but thought they look the right size.

Thanks

Cory

Found this nut that actually looks closer to OEM than the AMK nut.  Size is right.

The issue here might be the minimum order is 10,000.  Any body need these?  I will call and see.

Thanks

Because of the large minimum order, suggest you contact that supplier and ask if they would be so kind as to tell you who has ordered that part in the past.  Then contact those to see if you can purchase a small quantity.  I've done this in the past in similar circumstances and had some success.

Also sometimes suppliers will provide a small sample for free as it is easier than processing a very small order.  Its worth a try

Hi all,

I did call the one supplier.  My earlier minimum order quantity was a bit low.  The minimum order is 104,000 pieces and they have non in stock. The sales rep did give me the name of two companies that made a purchase back in 2019.  I am trying to contact them both, but they look like whole salers too.  I like the suggestion for samples.

I ran the part numbers from the one supplier and found them on AMAZON, but currently not available.  Bummer.  Lot size was 25 nuts.  Way better than 104,000.

Well, I just bought 50, with a minimum shipping of $25.

If any one needs some nuts, please send me a IM.  But first, lets see if they actually show up.  I will update when they show up.

Thanks
