Kadee 148's fit most Walthers diesels.
If the gearboxes needs changing, (which I doubt) the #5 gearbox may fit with a little fiddling.

I need the mounts too, not just the couplers. the mounts and screws are missing and screw into the frame I think, or press in, not really sure.

A photo or two (well-lit, and close up) would help a lot.

As mentioned above, I'd try Kadee #148's.
I -think- they come with draft gear boxes as well (no screws).

As far as the screws go, a standard (but not used everywhere) is 2-56, I believe.
Do you have a decent hardware store that stocks small screws nearby?
Or a hobby shop?
If so, take the loco frame there, and see if you can find something to fit.

You could also try contacting Walthers here for info:

Last I checked, they sold them both with and without draft gear boxes.

They also sell the screws.
