and after you are finished looking thru the hardware section and the electrical section go to plumbing and look at the PVC pipe.  Then thread it, shape it, cut it off to the desired thickness, and as they say, "Bob's your uncle".
Looks good! I like that solution, but one would still need to know what size to cut the threads. I think I did find a source for a part if anyone still needs one. PN 17H2669

I must have been thinking of a different part that I found a nut that way, because I looked at the pump I have on the shelf (It came off when the car was repainted 11 years ago and never went back on. I guess it's not really needed) and it has an internally threaded locking collar rather than an external nut.

So where did you end up finding the nut? Might be worth sharing.

New part arrived and fits great.

Super glue might fix it - it's worth a try.  The one in my photo has been super glued back together and it is holding now.  Whether it will survive the "push test" when I get the other parts only time will tell.

So I tried Lowe's, tried Home Depot, even tried Ace Hardware (Buck's Ace Hardware here in St. George) with no luck.  Here is a picture of the plastic "nut" I am looking for.

Is it the same diameter/size as the thin nuts used on toggle switches? You could check the electrical section too.

.

I am looking for the plastic "nut" that goes on the GWW102 manual pump - mine broke.  I have two working pumps and just need the nut to mount it under the "dash".
