    I wish that I had Andrews adjustable pushrods. The other day I was adjusting my Screamin Eagle pushrods and while I was locking the adjusting screw down the nut cracked. I was able to make a new nut up using a 1/2 hex nut and drilling it and tapping it. I don't know if my dealer will be able to get the proper nut for me on time as I am leaving for a little trip this week. The nut that I used is probably just a grade 5 nut, but I don't really think that it should make a difference. If it was an Andrews pushrod I could phone the engineer there and he would most likely send me out a new nut. I might call him for advice anyhow. Who would you call at Screamin Eagle? Do they even have a contact number?

    Uh, was that a rhetorical question? :D Screaming Eagle parts are probably made by Andrews or similar maker and they would probably sell you the part, but if you are asking for customer service or a contact number you could try...but likely you would have as much a possiblity of satisfaction as a BIG FOOT sighting up there in the woods. Likely you will get great customer service from Andrews. JMO

    It shouldn't matter who's nut you use as long as they have the same threads per inch (tpi). You may even find the proper size nut at a local NAPA store if you have one near.
