Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Confirming wire wheel hub details
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Les Schubert on Monday, May 02, 2016 - 05:08 pm:

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 :-)
