What Size Are '72 1310 Lug Nuts?

2021 Arizona International Harvester Rendezvous

I'll call the two salvage yards above tomorrow
They are both parts stores. I think E&M is closed on Mondays. Border parts should be open. Both have a wide range of new lug bolts, so I would assume lug nuts too.

I’d be more optimistic if they were salvage yards: these don’t seem to be available new these days.

We’ll see what happens, I guess.

Maybe a project where they did not keep the original parts in an orderly fashion. Don't ask why that popped in my head!

You mean like sorting through multiple coffee cans because you’re not real sure what a certain fastener looks like after 9 months or so? Don’t know a thing about it...

I don’t think this truck has been a project before now (government bucket or utility truck then fast-attack fire truck), always been at work from what I know, so someone had to work at screwing this up, I think.

While not a cheap fix, you could swap studs for rht. 89 Dodge W350 dually studs fit the rear. I haven't had to look for front studs.

I’ll probably just go with what I have if it comes that. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

I switched my left hand studs on my 73 to right hand ones [probably 12 years ago or so] I think I got them at Napa. Took one of the studs in and they were able to match it up [might be the mid 80's dodge ones]

Finally got ‘em:

The black one is off the truck, the other three are NAPA stock number 641-2778.

It took four tries to get 5/8-18 x 1” nuts; someone kept sending ones with 1 1/16 flats, which I’m trying to get rid of.

Make sure you get the right taper. I know on the 9/16" ones there are 60 degree and 90 degree and they are not interchangable and screw up your wheels if you get them wrong.

Here's how this saga worked out: After four or five trips to Napa here in town, I had finally amassed what I thought were enough 1" LH nuts. Turns out, I had transposed the count in my head, and bought two RH's I didn't need, and was short two LH's. I ordered the needed three in Wheatland, confident that Carquest had it handled. Harry then got to enjoy four trips to that parts store, eventually receiving all but one of the size we needed. Wheatland has three parts houses, two of which I go to for 99 44/100% of my parts runs. The other is out of the way, run down to the point of being uninviting. Guess who had the required LH nuts in stock? He also had the 2 1/2" axle nut socket I needed a couple weeks ago. Learned my lesson there.

Anyway, problem solved. We guessed the ongoing identical errors in these orders (Harry kept having to refuse 1 1/16" nuts, also) from two different parts retailers could be attributed to a common supplier mislabelling a batch of lug nuts at the point of manufacture. It sounded good over a six pack, anyway.
