Re: Locking Hubs STUDS...what kind?
My axle is at the house in the midcoast area, or I'd have some measurements, I haven't converted the Scout axles yet. It's easy. Just take one of the bolts down to NAPA or another store, and tell them you want a stud that's 1/2" longer than the bolt, with the same thread size and pitch. They'll give you some, just make sure to get the nuts that go on the outside, which is smaller than the part that threads into the wheel hub. To screw them in, just tighten two nuts back to back on the end, throw some Loctite to the threads, and screw it in. Then back the nuts off one at a time, and it's in.
