In Reply to: 1941 Ford Model 9N - Studs at the End of the Axle Housing posted by Bill Langenfeld on February 04, 2023 at 23:46:00:
Try this link to Summit Racing. Studs are available through several suppliers. You won't find many of the old Ford fastener parts anymore by their part number. Studs are designed with a nominal thread size, 7/16" in this case, and one end is a Fine Thread (NF) and the other end is a coarse Thread (NC). The NC/Coarse end always fastens into a cast iron part and the NF/Fine end always accepts the Hex Nut. Studs are a stronger fastener than a bolt. If you stripped one end of your stud, did you accidentally try to insert it backwards with the wrong end? You may want to check the axle housing as that is essential it has the right TPI size. Do you have a 7/16-14 Tap in case you need to chase the housing.Studs are easily replaceable, axle housings not so much. Summit supplies Dorman products. The 7/16 x 2-1/2 Stud is listed at $26 for pack of 10.
