Thanks for the info and confirmation!

: I agree with Ron Taylor. No need to pin the lug
: nuts. I've removed and reinstalled several knock-off hubs from Turners and TR-3s and never peened them on re-installation. Just make sure the mating surfaces of the brake drums and back side of the knock-off hubs are perfectly clean and unpainted. And be sure to use cut down lug nuts.

: : Mk.III's came from the factory w/the rear knock-off hub securing lug nuts peened to the wheel studs. Is this method still recommended when brake work is needed or is applying thread locker sufficient? Peening usually results in damaged lug nut threads upon removal.

: : Turn down morris1000 nuts from chamfered end this will ensure full threads on the cut down
: : If required you could drill corner of nuts.to wire lock as in aircraft
: : I just turned mine down and never.had one lose yet. Ford powered Turner
