I think it's a #10 x 3/8" sheet metal screw. In any case, NPD sells the correct screw with the correct head configuration...

They are #8 x 3/8". NPD has the correct AMK ones or you can get the close to correct ones in Stainless steel at NAPA. They come in a bag of 20 I think.

Trivia:
The Org. (1970 Era.) screws that hold the wheel well trim are stainless and have a little " Triangle " stamped on the head of each screw, Mfg. I.D.
Yea, I know. Who cares.

That is a steal. I think your way underpriced compared to the air cleaner wing nuts for 75.00.
