Re: [FWDLK] lug nuts 1956 Mopar?



Cost makes sense, Brent, but then why would DeSoto have lug bolts and Dodge have nuts?  Not exactly a burning question; just curious.
 
Myself, when I try to hang a wheel on the pin the drum starts to turn before I can get the first bolt in.

  The lug bolts are easy enough to use if the locating pin is in place.  I swing the drum to where the pin is 
at the 12-O'clock position and hang the wheel on it, stick a bolt in at the 10 or 2 spot and start the threads
to secure, then fill in the rest.  Too easy.  Buick used the bolts at least through 60 as well.
 
  One reason might be production costs ?  The loose bolts did not require the press-assembly step to make,
cutting one process out of the overall production schedule.

From my experience the ‘50’s Dodges I’ve worked on had lug nuts, the DeSotos and Plymouths had lug bolts and a guide pin. The studs and lug nuts are a lot easier to put a wheel on, don’t know why they ever used lug bolts.   Never seen a car with mixed drums; if someone has that setup maybe some drums were switched or possibly the whole axle.

What size are the lug nuts on our '56 Mopars?
I need a lug wrench and want the right one.
