1928-29 Rear Wheel Studs

Post by Jared275 » September 19th, 2012, 6:44 am

Does anyone know if there is a source for 1928-29 rear wheel studs (worm drive)? I need some at least one on the drivers and passanger side. Looking through Macs and Snyders I see that they are not offered. If they are not available, does anyone have any suggestions other than purchasing the Hub/drum/stud assembly complete.
Regards,
Jared

does your rims have the scalups on them( AA-1116-BR ). I have never found any unless you get another drum for the studs or replace yours.

A few years ago I bought some from Neil Wilson. You have to press them into the brake drum.

Jared, I probably have some. How many do you need, and are they right and/or left hand thread? Tim is right, after the stud is installed in the hub/drum assembly, it gets put in a press and swedged in just like the ones on the Model A's. I had to make a special tool to fit the AA studs though.
