Shouldn't those wheels be used with a different type of nut that's tapered and fits into the stud hole instead of flush up against the wheel?
I believe that is a conical nut, isn't it?
(sigh) aren't you the comical nut
comical nuts indeed...
Yes - these are conical nuts. I normally use the decorative closed top style, but was checking thread engagement with the standard kind.
Any good FLAPS should be able to hook you up with a 1/2"x20 stud that is long enough just by rummaging around in the drawers a bit.
Try a Dorman 610106 stud for size, that should get you close!
These came with acorn nuts with beveled seats, I recall. The other style for mags has an 'alignment shoulder' of sorts and a narrow, thick washer - the seat is not beveled. The regular nuts with beveled seats should be ok, though not as purty as the acorn nuts.
Yes - I normally use a polished acorn nut with the beveled seat, but they cover the stud and don't allow for this type of inspection.
I have installed a Dorman 610-219 stud and it will work. It has 2 threads protruding past the factory lug nut which is generally considered ideal for such installations.
If anyone is planning to start from scratch with 1977 - 1986 factory CJ disk brake parts, use the widely published 610-273 stud for steel wheels and use the 610-219 stud for aluminum wheels.
