This is my first post on this forum, so hello from Tennessee. I am needing one of the 4 bolts and 2 slotted attaching cap nuts that hold the fan cage strut to the motor housing for a Westinghouse 321347 16 inch. It actually measures 17 inch, I think. This is the bolt that goes through the motor housing and is secured by 2 slotted cap nuts, one on each end. I am not needing the strut. Any responses would be appreciated.

Are your slotted acorn nuts brass or steel? And do your threaded motor bolts have 6-32 or 8-32 threads?

2 7/8 inch bolt length without nuts. Sorry for the delay in response. Had to get the bolt out and find a way to measure threads.

Looks like 8-32. They are steel. Sorry for the delay in response. Had to get the bolt out and find a way to measure threads.

These look like what you need:
https://antiquefanparts.com/original-slotted-hex-motor-nuts-for-westinghouse-stamped-steel-fan/

You may want to email antiquefanparts.com to make sure they are 8-32, but since they are steel, that's probably what they are. 

For the motor stud, I suggest going to Ace, get a 6 inch length of 8-32 threaded rod (probably $2 or $3) and grab your metal saw or cut off wheel and cut a section about 1/16 to 1/8 inch longer than 2 7/8". Then take it to a bench grinder and grind it down closer to the length you want. Grind down the end you cut, not the factory end. Your cut end might not thread first try, you might have to grind some more off, or try threading an 8-32 nut from the other end down to the cut end and try to get the end to thread right. If worst comes to worst, you can use the other half of the 6" rod and try again. I've done this with several studs, and many times it is easy and the threads work out right, but sometimes it requires some extra work to get the end to thread right.

 Thank you for the information. Everyone is very helpful
