  1. Want to convert my 1924 brooks steamer to wires. Need hubs and wheels tires are 5.25/5.50 21. Wondering what's out there and available . Will post taper axel diameter tommorrow. Has rear brakes only 6 bolt drums. Thanks pictures of my car are in the discussion forum under anyone restoring a doble
  2. I have sent a note to the fellow in England that is on this site about getting the dimensions of the bolt head. I have communicated with him before but it takes a few days for a response . The bolts pictured above are not what I am looking for but thank you for your effort. I think they are going to be in the 1 1/4 × 1 inch range. I will post size once I am sure . May have to go make them myself route. Thanks for all the input on this. Mark
  3. OK my mistake. Took a wheel apart and got some correct measurements . Bolts are 7/16 dia. And 2 inches long from underside of head. Sorry for the confusion the modern bolts in rhe wheels looked to be 3/8 but are not.. thanks
  4. Thanks for all the response to this. I will check on the length today I think you are correct they will be shorter than 4 inch. Going by the markings on the spokes the head is wider and obviously longer than a standard carraige bolts. Certainly can be made but I thought I would ask around first I need 12. If l only needed 1 or 2 I would have tried something all ready. Thanks again
