I just picked up some standard Spridget lug nuts. Will have them machined to match the taper on the hubs. Much stronger than the punny little nuts that were on there. I did find thos punny things though. They are standard nylok nuts that were machined to a taper. Result was nuts with lands so small, wrenches chewed them up.
: Norm, when I rebuilt my Turner I also discovered that the nuts where not exactly good, nor were the tapers correct for the bolt-on hubs. I purchased new nuts and measured and compared the tapers and found that I had to recut the tapers. Also noted that the pcd was not the same. So please ensure that what ever you fit is as good a fit as possible. Really the hub could do with the holes welding up and redrilling to the correct pcd
