Jacked off at Jacknuts

Friends,
I am fighting with the hardware that keeps the dog-house cover over the engine. There are 4 bolts that screw into "jack nut" nuts, two in front & two at the back. The problem is that two of these suckers have failed. On one, the nut came off and the other is now spinning around and not doing any tightening or loosening of the bolt on the lip of the frame.


I found, from lettering on what was left of one, that the things are names "jack nut"s & that they are #8 pop jack nuts. Unfortunately the only ones that I can find are for #6 or 1/4".


Is #8 the same as 1/4"?


wise words needed.

I think #12 is 1/4 inch.

Use bolts from under with nuts and washers to lock them to the floor. They will work like studs.

Then place the cover over and use nuts and washers on top.

I bought replacement nuts at a local industrial supply store. They had 1/4" Jack nuts in stock along with the little tool to hold the nut until it is compressed.
This is not where I bought mine but they do have them if you can't find them local.

Recommend you consider Nutserts....same idea as jack nut, but much stronger.
You can find them at NAPA, Ace Hdw or Amazon.

The things have a tendency to break and when that happens, the nut drops into the engine area.
