Wheel studs

How do you get the wheel studs out? I need to change a few on my 1960 SP250 and the local machine shop said you can not press them out. Thanks

Hi William
I do not know for sure about an SP 250 but the Daimler Conquest wheel studs have a fine thread which screws into the hub and then punched on the screwed in end to stop them unscrewing.
I know this because a tyre company got over enthusiastic with a wheel gun and managed to remove a stud rather than the wheel nut.

Thanks Graham. I thought they might be screw in studs, as seen on David Manners web site. The screw in end has a pattern of lines, almost like slots for a straight screwdriver to fit but very shallow.

I would think that those shallow lines are where the chisel and hammer are applied after screwing into the hub to spread the end of the stud.
I expect removal of the studs will be difficult, it may be best to grind off the punched end flush to the hub before unscrewing is attempted.

I have a set of four hubs with good studs and nuts which you are welcome to for the price of the postage for one or all of them.

Thanks Ian, I have worked out a fix so the studs are usable again and I will not have to replace them. Amazing what a small grinder and a Dremal tool can do.
