Just like the title say I need a 54x1400 nozzle and 54mm bulkhead for a Kosdon case.

Does it need to be Kosdon style with no shoulder on the nozzle or can it be 54mm compatible for snap ring hardware?….(AMW, Gorilla, Tru Core) I have plenty of EX stuff I’d be willing to part with in certain sizes.

Thanks but it has to be a Kosdon bulkhead, I have some KBAs left.

I have an extra Kosdon 54mm bulkhead if Preston has an extra 1400 nozzle. It is likely that we'll rendezvous in the next few weeks and could combine shipping.

Two notes:
1. AMW nozzles work just fine with the KBA loads. If the liner step bothers you, you can cut a short length of liner material to cover the section...or better yet cut a longer liner that covers the gap and protects the case better. I have the throat of the 1400 nozzle listed as .485"...that's the important part.
2. My Kosdon bulkheads have been re-machined by Trucore (Ed Romani) to include the liner step. Again for a sealed liner interface. The only impact on functionality is improved protection of the case on the forward end. Same deal here, the area can be covered with a short length of liner...or better yet, cut a new liner that covers the extra length on both ends.

If no luck, I have a nice,flown maybe once or twice, gold annodized Kosdon 54mm Delay BH.
Don't think I have an extra 1400 nozzle, though.
LMK, I can get a photo.

I can probably get an AMW nozzle from Robert, let me know about the bulkhead.

I don’t know if it helps, but I have an AMW 54/1400 motor, case , nozzle, standard forward closure and what I assume is a spacer for use with the plugged closure. Don’t have any o-rings, washers or snap rings. One problem, is the nozzle throat measures .4375 Here’s a picture:
