Rear Wheel Studs - Dimensions & Alternative ?
« on: November 29, 2020, 11:55:21 am »
I took my rear wheel off recently for cleaning.

One of the Studs was corroded onto the Wheel Nut,
and the Stud unscrewed from the Final Drive Unit !

It was easy enough to remove the Stud from the Nut -
a little WD40, gripped the plain section in a vice, then unscrewed it.

I have since re-fitted it to the Final Drive Unit
after applying some Hylogrip HY2170 Thread Locking compound
to the end that screws into the Final Drive Unit.

While the Stud was out, having recalled that another Member had
difficulty finding replacements, after he found SHEARED Studs on his Trophy,
I took the opportunity to measure them - as in the below Image.

I haven't yet found anyone that supplies these Studs.
( Please let me know if YOU do ! ).

Hopefully the measurements will help anyone that needs to have some made.



Cheers  :821:

This is the closest I've found looking at the usual suspects:

The problem with those is that although they will screw into the Final Drive Unit,
the Wheel Nuts won't fit onto them as they are the same thread on both ends,
( M10 x 1.5 ) whereas the Trophy Studs have different threads ( M10 x1.5 & M10 x 1.25 )

If you did use one of those, you would also need an M10 x 1.5 pitch Wheel Nut ( 60 Deg. taper ),
and that will probably have a different size Hex head than the standard Trophy Wheel Nuts too.  :087:

I see that now.  That's what I get when I reply and feel all smug with myself thinking I found the answer.   :431: :034:

Thanks for that info Coconut.

i think I'll remove the rear wheel mounting nuts one at a time and apply some copper anti-seize to the threads.  I know any kind of lube, etc. isn't recommended on wheel studs , but I have been lubing wheel studs on my cars and motorcycles for the past 30 years and haven't had a problem with any of them loosening up.

Rick:

I use to go to McMaster-Carr first for bolts & nuts, etc.  but then found Bolt Depot and have been happy with their bolt & nut selection, prices and service.  I still deal with McMaster-Carr for other stuff, tho.

I did find exhaust manifold studs the right thread pitch each end, but not sure about the strength.  No rating listed on them, and dimensionally not an exact match on the lenth either.
