I recently replaced my fuel filter and after reassembly I noticed one of the nylon 10mm retainer nut were stripped in the thread. So I am looking for a replacement but am having no luck even searching the marking on the nut. Any insight and a source to buy would be awesome. Thank you

Look on the peg hooks at an auto parts store. They usually have a mixed pack of odd ball fasteners like this. You might pay 5 or 6 bucks, but if it has one of these in it, you'll be done with the project.

Take your stripped piece with you for comparison.

Also, occasionally, at some parts stores, they may have a stash behind the counter you can pick thru.

One more idea, put a wrap of tape around the threads, then try running the nut back on. That might give it just enough bite to suffice. (Make sure you wrap it clockwise :) )
