    bottom of the grill screws

    Does anyone know how the bottom of the grill was fastened down to the apron on large mouth TR3A . The top 4 screws have a spire cage deal and a sheet metal screw, but the bottom 4 I cannot figure that out. Perhaps an OH machine screw with a nut, or some type of spire nut and a sheet metal screw like the top 4.

    SPC lists FN2043/9, which is a flat speed nut with zinc chromate paint.

    Thanks Randall I would not have thought it would have been that plus it explains how some of old stuff is olive green. Is there a catalogue that shows pictures of the tr3A? My stuff only shows the tr3 with the small grill.

    Nope, no pictures. Just a text listing.
