I am looking for recommendations for replacement trucks for Lionel covered hopper IC 9264.  This car has the old plastic rivet's holding plastic Bettendorf trucks on it.  I would like to install die cast sprung trucks on it.  My local shop had Lionel replacement trucks but there is no hardware to fasten them to the car.  Any ideas ?

I use a standard 6-32 round or flat head screw and nut to attach die cast trucks to cars after pulling the plastic ones off.  Trim the screw to length with a bolt cutter,  use a drop of red or blue thread locker and tighten just enough to get some swivel play in truck.

Thank you sir, this is exactly what I needed.  I never thought about shortening the screw to fit.  I am still perplexed on why Lionel does not include hardware with their die cast truck kits.
