Need GWS prop nut part number, direct drive props.

I have some GWS direct drive props with the prop nut impressions. They are made to slip over a nut on the prop shaft. The smaller props are fine as I have the needed 5.5mm nuts (3mm threads).
The larger prop require a 7 mm nut that fits in the prop.
I have a 3mm threaded shaft. What is the part number for a GWS nut that has 3 mm threads and requires a 7 mm wrench?
All the 3 mm nuts I found took a 5.5 mm wrench...
I need a 3mm nut that takes a 7mm wrench.

What is the part number?

If the 7mm nut is not available, probably you could try using a washer in 10 or 12mm diameter in front of the old 5.5mm nut on the threaded shaft, then put the prop on to the shaft, and add another washer, then screw them tightly by another nut.

The shaft isn't long enough for all of that...
The first nut is supposed to fit inside the prop. When it is spaced out with a washer, there isn't room to get the other washer and nut on.
I could cut the shaft and use a regular clinch type prop adapter but I'm not going to.
I want to find the correct nut...
