Had to destroy the castle nut to get it off of the axle of my 1966 Toronado. One would work two would be great. Can't find any online.

Try Mr. G's:

Facca Fasteners probably has them. Call them, though since their website sucks and 99% of what they sell is not listed on it:

Rock Auto has every size except the one you need.

Faster Connection probably has it as well.

Dorman lists 1"x14 in two heights. Are you sure it's 1x20?

Yep it is a 1-20. I first off checked the tpi with a gauge I have and then the only 1-20 that I found was a real short nut that would not really do the job but for 10 bucks bought it as a test. Fits perfect. That didn't really help me with my problem so I will check the suppliers that are mentioned above and cross my fingers. I never thought of the problem finding one to begin with but though for sure someone would have something from a parts car.
Thanks for the info
Ben

Well no good on those companies. Nothing even close. Looks like I can only hope to find a parts car or have one made...... ouch!

Here are a couple suggestions.

Applied GMC. Call them and ask for Jim. He runs the place and is normally very willing to help out. http://www.appliedgmc.com

A friend of mine owns a muffler shop and also does brakes, wheel bearings, etc. He has a couple 5 gallon buckets of random parts , nuts, bolts, etc. that are left over from all kinds of installations. He has often found oddball parts for me (or allowed me to dig through them) for my 79 F100. Perhaps a shop near you might have a pile of old nuts and bolts they save for odd occasions and might look for you or let you look?

Do you have any Pull-a-Part type junkyards near you?

Call John Dorcey in Las Vegas. He has 50 1966-1970 Toronado parts cars.
