Re: [FWDLK] lug nuts 1956 Mopar?



  I think that is where I would have tooled up a bolt with some threadless shank (head cut off)
to run in like a locating pin.

  You could then get the other bolts in, and remove the "tool" to get that last bolt in.

Turn the hub so the pin is at 12 o’clock like Brent said, Worked for me for years.  Want some fun with lug bolts? Try putting the wheels on an early VW with the wide bolt pattern. No locating pins and no close fitting hub to at least help guide the wheel. It was all holding the wheel in line and with one hand and starting the one bolt with the other! Thank heaven they were not all that heavy as it was a real (nasty 5 letter word). Once one bolt was started it was comparatively easy going but you still had to swing that wheel around with all that free movement due to not having a close fitting hub. Having that guide pin was a big help on US cars.

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.
