Yet another question today...[:I] I have stripped lugs on one of the wagon's rear wheels (hubs?). Can I get one of the lugs out or do I have to replace all of them?

OOPS!! I forgot.[:I] It's a 64 Commander wagon.

Lotsa Larks!

You can have just one pressed out and a new one pressed in.

Actually it's something that ya can do 'clunker. Pull the drum/hub assembly, lay it "open side" down on a wide, heavy piece of board, get a "BFH", (big f%#@in' hammer), take careful aim and whack the offending stud on the top, (it should drop completely out of the hub with as few as a couple of good whacks). Get two short pieces of two-by-four lumber, set the drum/hub assembly on the lumber open face up, insert the new stud in the hub, whack the stud base from the "open" side until it's flush with the hub.

Some of the stud bases in the hub are countersunk in the hub, but in any event, I usually use a heavy, round, flat drift pin, (like an old king pin saved from my Ford truck), to whack on the back of the studs. But having said that, if you can get the stud back in the hub close to being seated, when you tighten the lug nut when you put the wheel back on, it will completely seat the stud too.

You can do it!
