Studding Hub

One wheel on my '76 Globetrotter has lug nuts - one of the holes is stripped.

Want to replace with studs.

Where shall I take hub to get the damaged thread fixed and what will stop the studs from working their way loose once I install them on the hub?

Thanks, as always.

Ken

hi Ken,

Not sure I understand your question. What exactly is stripped? Studs are typically a pressed fit onto (or into might be a better word) the hub. Any reputable auto shop should be able to press out the old stud and press in a new one. Not only are the studs pressed into the hub from the rear, the lug nut being tightened to hold the wheel on will also hold the stud in place.

That help?

Chris

Thanks, Chris.

One wheel is studded and the other has lug nuts - in other words - there are threaded holes on this hub and lug "bolts" go in the holes. One of the threaded holes is stripped.

Just trying to figure best place to take hub to or if I can buy studs and locktite them in.

Safety is my first priority.

That would be a lug bolt on one and lug nut on the other. You can buy a new hub easily for under $50.00 plus the bearings. I would just replace the damaged hub. It will be cheaper than drilling and pressing in new studs if it can be done.

Ken,

I would purchase a new drum with studs rather than trying to convert the existing drum.

If your magnets and brake shoes are worn it would be a good time to buy a new backing plates with all the parts installed. The ebay pic looks right, but make sure it is the correct part # for your brand of axles.

It should. When I have purchased new drums, they come with the bearings. Check with a few trailer parts stores for prices. I believe that all drums are the same (especially since 1976), as long as the size is correct.

That's what Locktite Red (271) is for. You put the red on the threads that go into the hub. If you have cleaned properly, prep is important, you will need a torch to remove something held with red. The package used to call it Stud and Bearing Loctite.

Shoot, I thought a "studding hub" was a place where eager women go to meet macho guys. I was going to inquire about membership. Rats.

And, as Dave Barry would point out, it would make an excellent name for a band.

I think studs & loctite would work fine. Any suggestions on a good resource for purchasing six studs?

But, on other hand, if one of the thread holes is stripped, maybe cheaper just to buy two new hubs and call it a day - bearings are good and just installed brand new brake units purchased from Inland.

What would be the RX for re-tapping hole - it isn't completely stripped - it's stripped at the beginning of the hole but lug bolt isn't long enough to get a grip.

Thanks everyone!

You can get a longer lug bolt and a tap and chase the threads and apply loctite.

Or you can drill out the hole and tap it for the next larger sized bolt. Most wheels will still fit.

Or try a helicoil.

I'd do that kind of stuff on a hay rack or something else low speed or light where safety isn't a big deal.

But I wouldn't do it on an Airstream.
