General Purpose
Sounds like one side has "push on" retainers and that side is OK. Sounds like you modified the other side's stud to be threaded and used a nut of some kind. The nut came off. So wouldn't you just get another nut like the one that fell off?

Generally speaking Tinnermans are stationary. They are used with a screw that can turn into them. Generally they are not push on.

At this point I don't know if you need a push on or thread on style.

Tinnerman makes a "Pal nut" that threads on and they make an "axle nut" that pushes on. There are other names for these retainers. You will just have to go to a good hardware store with your emblem and play in the toy box.

"chingaderas" nono
4 out of 5 definitions that I could find are vulgar.

However,, I am very sure this meaning/definition is what you mean

For most Hispanics now-a-days it means "thing with no name". Like cosa.

After going to NAPA yesterday and buying a bag of 50 hat type nuts which, although they were labeled 3/16" for the stud, the hole was too small, so I took them back. On the way there I stopped by O'reilly's, and they didn't even know what I was talking about. Then I headed over to my local Ace hardware store, as klhansen suggested, and low and behold, there they were. 55 cents each, which beat $9 for a whole bag of nuts I'd probably have sitting on my tool bench forever. So, the emblems are on and the job is as done as it's gonna get. Thanks, everybody. This forum never fails to help me.

Just seen this thread, if ever needed again that GM #3695282 Speed nut shown on FAM Sect. 11 Sheet 7 , is a group 8.921 Item, , nut, stamped steel. 3/16 in rod.
The modern day equivalent is a Hillman #10 Flat Speed Nut # 881233 and can be found at Lowes. Don't ask me how much time and effort it took to figure that out. Its an affliction.....no cure, Well there is one but I'm not ready to go there just yet.
