On the 312 I have 55 pound weights on the back, two bolts holding them on. But, they only have holes for two bolts.
On the front of both of my Power Kings they have 25 pound weights and they are held on with two bolts, and have four holes. I don't have a real reason why they don't have four bolts. I just don't really think they are needed. They are pretty secure and I am not worried about scratches if they move a little.
In the winter the '75 has 35 pound weights on the back. I think they have four holes, but I only use two bolts.

As for what kind of bolts, I get the right length 1/2" carriage bolts. I know they're supposed to be 9/16 or 5/8, but (4) 1/2" is all I use on my 240 lb weights on my 81... so I think these will hold

i have factory cub weights i picked up a couple years ago and im just getting around to doing something with them
If they are just the 25 pound ones you will be fine with two bolts. If you were going to put them on something for a restoration and show I think four bolts would look better, but ultimately don't change much.
