Starting to make a couple of sets of hydraulic front brakes for 26-7 wire wheels. Just want to confirm a couple of details as I don't have any wheel studs handy
Seems like it is 5 holes on 5" circle. The holes seem like 5/8". The raised ridge to keep the studs from turning seems like it is 4.29" (or perhaps as small as 4-1/4")?
These are for someone else and I wasn't going to supply the studs
Thx for the help
I think the studs are swaged in place. I would think the hole for them would be fussy about the diameter. Some of mine worked loose so I just welded them in place.
Someone else,maybe Dan Treace or Trent Boggess can help with dimensions.
Thx Ted. I'm just trying to reduce the "guess work "!!
Measured a Ford wire wheel front hub.
The bolt pattern is 5" on centers.
The bolt (stud) has a 9/16" (0.562") dia. shank, that is press fit (not swagged) to the holes in the hub flange.
The studs have a squared off edge on the head to keep from rotating.
That 'raised' ridge or flange around the bolt holes to keep the studs from twisting is 4 5/16" (4.3125") in diameter at the outer edge that touches the studs.
Works sometimes, you can see the stud on the far right has been 'glob' welded in place
Thanks for the good information. Much appreciated
