Okay, kidding aside for a moment! Do you all think I can get by with putting 3 studs on each wheel to mount the rotors on, then the lead on to the rotors? Or should I go ahead with all 5? I will set this up to mount the rotors on top of the wheel nuts so I don't have these rubbing the wheels when they are installed. I hope to have about 50-70 lbs. all together per wheel.

3 should do just fine, but wondering if you plan to use all-thread for this? Are your threads coarse or fine. Never looked for fine thread all thread before....is it available?

you can get all thread in fine or course, and you can get it in grade 5 and grade 8. There are a lot of GT's out there that only used 3 lug bolts orginally. All my Sub's work this way and the weights just slides down over longer studs. Mine are not all threaded, but in fact studs, with about an inch of thread at the rim/ a nut. There is a second set of nuts and a flat washer on the outside.

Just got to looking. I can get a 2' piece of B7 7/16"-20 from McMaster-Carr for $3.79. I can get a box of 25 lug nuts from NAPA fairly cheap. If I use three studs, need 12 nuts. Have a few extra. This will set the inside of the rotor about 3/8"-1/2" out from the rim. That's why I was wondering if 5 might be better with all that weight hanging out there.

Lauber1, are those 7/16"-20 by chance? I tried looking at NAPA for something similar, but gave up at 500 items out of 1800+/-.

i beleive that they are. I know there 7/16 fine, but dont know the thread count. My weights are 50# on just the 3 bolts so you shouldnt have any problems with your. You could also use a short closed pipe nipple as spacer to move you weights out farther.

That would be Heavy Duty. That other "HD" word you mentioned (Orange Depot?) is not used in my home. Causes hives.:mad2:

If you have a Fastenal distributor in your area they have the fine thread all thread. At least ours did when I needed it.

Yep, Fastenal is near me too. All I've ever bought is coarse thread readi-rod myself.

Wow, now I know I have been out of the loop. At first I thought this was that other guy's thread and then I read the thread title and didn't see plate and then I thought maybe someone was confessing......... :bigrofl:

Member J1Morris kindly offered info that left handed lock washers could be found at aviation hardware sources in the thread " Left handed lock washers " started by me . His post was 8-20-2011. As for re-cycling things yeah there are good ideas like Kenny's. The rest was a little ( shuck and jive ) . The best farm tractors were prototyped in farmers' barns - Wagners . Steigers , my uncle's home made self propelled chopper in 1948 with two engines . A flathead Ford drove the chopping wheel . A good post - all true.

I would like to find the studs Lauber1 speaks of, guess I'll muddle thru the Napa site and see what I find. Thanks to Toolpartzman, I have the turkey fryer coming. Now to find some "one thick titanium plate" for the outside sandwich.:bigrofl: And a physicist to machine it!:bigrofl::bigrofl:
