Lug Bolts for 1926 Artillery Wheel

Recommended Posts

For want of a better term I've called them lug bolts but whatever the correct term is, has anyone found a source for the bolt that holds the rim to the felloe for a 1926 Std 6? Whether they're common across models I don't know but I have one that has been severely abused at some stage in its life and I'd like to replace it.

The shafts on the ones I have are 3" long (under the head to end of the thread) X 7/16. There is an ovality just under the head and about 1/2 way along to lock it it to felloe. The head is D shaped so it catches both the rim and the felloe.

Any ideas as I don't have the gear to make my own.

Leif, I think you're right they look like they are the style 4 ones you have illustrated. Also thanks for the prompt to update my profile I've been meaning to do it for some time now. I'm in Australia.

Neil,

       Ebay has had these bolts several times in the past year.

       Check listings under rim bolts.

I actually made replacements using grade 8 bolts and my welder with a bit of grinding to add the bump "lock" that keeps the fellow from collapsing.

Neil,

We have plenty of these. How many can I send you? Just pay me the shipping when you receive them. We have been sending a lot of stuff your way. Hidden Hunter has some of our stuff on his car, also a 26 model 25.

We don't have any disc wheel stuff. I had a complete set years ago and they wound up with Fred R. in L.A. I have more of the Standard wood wheel bolts, send me a P.M. They are usually bent a little, I straighten them as long as the threads are good.

If anyone needs wheels we have two real nice sets of 26-28 Standard wood wheels, natural finish, very solid and tight. One set is off a 28 model 27 that had a trailer mishap and was wrecked. They have green rims. The other set is off my 27 model 24 roadster, yellow rims. I took them off for a Buffalo wire wheel conversion. Priced right, somebody must have a project with rotten spoke wheels.

Hi Guys,

 

I'm a Dutch guy, helping out a friend in Minnesota! He is looking for a wheel bolt for his 1917 Overland.

 

Can somebody help me out?

Job,

Can you provide a picture with dimensions so that we know what style and size he needs?    Hugh
