On Stude cars with 44 rear ends, the nut size is 1 1/4". Not sure about the threads. Also, the last time I bought repro nuts from a favorite vendor, the threads and nut size were close, but no cigar. The socket would not quite fit it, and the threads woulda made their own on the axle, if I had forced it. Something musta got confused with the metric conversion.

I ran to the trusted connections here instead of checking my trucks parts catalog. Appreciate the help. Application is Champ truck and nut is 1" x 14. Stephen Allen's has one on da way.
Thanks again,
