Airbox stud and wing nut, 89 YJ V6?

These are not dealer items anymore (discontinued); Quadretec doesn't carry them and I have searched numerous juck yards. Does anyone know of a company that sells them or a manufacturer that has picked up production of these items?

Anyone know the demisions of these items? I was thinking maybe I could find a stud that would fit from a local metal shop or something. Any ideas?

This is for a 1989 YJ V6 with OEM carb.

first it is a straight 6 not a V6. I think your talking about the stud coming from the top of the carb???? I actaully made mine with some heavy gauge wire and a 1/4" bolt when I still had the carter carb.

I was able to pick up the stud and wing nut at advance auto. THey had generic carb parts and it was in that section.

Thanks guys, will take the refurbed carb into the parts store and see if they can't match it up with a generic.
