Broken studs from a loose wheel '72 Soverign

I had a wheel come loose on my '72 Soverign and broke a couple of wheel studs. Any clues on stud replacement? I have not figured out how to disassemble the Hub, drum and plate assembly. According to the manual it is a Unicast Kelsey-Hayes 85451 Hub and Drum.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Paul

Can you post a photo of the needed stud, I have some spares from our 63 Safari. Your welcome to them if they will fit, they are countersunk to fit flush on the plate for the magnets.

Thanks Bob,

I'll take a photo tonight. I guess my main question is- Do these studs just screw in so I will have to use an easy-out to get the broken ones out...??

Thanks,
Paul

Well I guess the old grey cells ain't what they used to be.
After checking the Safari trip diary I realized that it wasn't the wheel studs that were a problem, they were readily available at NAPA. What gave me fits was finding the grade 8 countersunk hex-head machine screws that hold the magnet plate to the inside of the drum. I have three of those. Whats puzzling is they are metric. 5mm hex head, 8mm x 1.25 thread. 20mm long. I finally found them at a big rig repair shop up in the Adirondacks. Keep us posted.
