Has anyone put Alcoa wheels on a B 61 Mack front axel? Where can I get longer wheel studs?

Also, Fleetpride and any decent heavy duty truck service shop should be able to help you out. Jim

Ask if they have a Euclid catalog. It shows actual size pictures. Best to take an old stud with you.

Thanks guys, I already tried those options. No luck. I have Naniamo Mack looking, hope they can help!

I am in Hope Bob. I think I called you about your Mack, LT, red? Beautiful truck, but I needed a single axel!

Im surprised Euclid doesnt make one thats pretty much the one stop shop for chassis parts, it may have to be a different style stud to mount the thicker wheels as long as the threads and the knurled portion of the shoulder are the same the head should clear and the rest of the stud can have a different straight shoulder or thread length.

Superdog, you may have more options down there. I need about 5/8 more length on the outboard thread than in the picture. Some one must have put Aluminum on the old Mack before!

You may need to change to the smaller diameter on the outside (same as rear) and use the fat nuts.

I use "CBS Parts" in Burnaby, they have an outlet in Abbotsford... the Euclid stud sizing chart is usually on the parts desk.. they got me all my odd ball stuff for my 56 bus, sometimes you have a minimum order for package size and have to wait for a stock order or pay extra freight... don't forget to renew the back nuts and hardened washers, not supposed to be used twice (but we all do!!)..

also, try Inland KW in Burnaby, plus all the truck shops in Port Kells/Langley... there's got to be a "wise man" among them..

Im guessing 3/4-16 Left and Right thread on the wheel end but I dont know what the other side is, can you get me the thread size on the back. I found one that looks to be that size in my catalog its 5/8 on the back and appears to match the stud you have. I can probably find it I just need to know for sure what the thread sizes are and I am guessing the back length of 1.75" is ok but you need something more like 2.5 to 3 on the 3/4-16 wheel end instead of 2", is that correct and you have left and right handed studs not all the same correct?

You can change the studs to 3/4-16 outer thread, then thread on long inner nuts and tighten them and use large outer nuts. Only draw back you have the 13/16 square that will show. (saw them off?)

So if i have figured it right 7/8" x 1 3/4 long then the flange and 1 1/8 x 2 9/64 but you need an additional 3/4 inch so over all length to be at 4 7/8 to 5 inches.

Based off that description of the original stud it should be a euclid E-5922-L /R, there is not a stud that is that size 3/4 inch longer
