I'm not sure I like this. I'm thinking maybe I want to go with two wires twisted together, one going through the hole and the other going around the nut. Opinions?

That will work, if you have a cheap wire twister the two twisted together look neat but who's gonna see it? KGB

Steve, here is a short slide presentation on safety wire technique:

Here is a sketch showing the wiring of a ring of five studs and nuts (I couldn't find a picture of just three).

Several years ago I bit the bullet and bought a pair of safety wire pliers and a spool of 0.032 stainless safety wire, they have served me well.

For those who like videos, here is a USAF video showing an airman trainee doing a pair of bolts:

I finally found a picture for wiring three bolts: Note that you do not have to "close" the ring unless you're a stickler for symmetry. :-)

ex-troop's video has some good pointers. I'm glad no one was "scoring" some I've done. :-)

On my '23 rear end those 3 items were not studs but bolts and the nuts were cottered when I took it apart.

Yes, the parts book shows the studs for 1921 and before, and bolts for 1922-1927.

Thanks guys, picked up some good pointers. I've probably done some like Mike or maybe worse.

My neighbor was a mechanic in the Air-force, when he saw my safety wire job on my transmission he cut it all off and made me do it over. He taught me just like in the last video.

Aircraft safety wiring is neater and probably better. However, safety wiring styled like Steve has done and similar has held Model T's together for nearly a 100 years now and will work just fine
